Warren Troy, Alaska wilderness adventure author, continues the Alaska homestead adventures of Denny Caraway. Caraway, long time Alaskan homesteader, is content to live a solitary, rugged and often dangerous life deep in the northern wilderness. After many years alone, however, loneliness causes him to seek companionship on his remote land and he reconnects with a former friend and lover who is willing to share his isolated life. Denny's world is full and complete until tragedy strikes, and Caraway completely severs all ties with the few people he does know. Leaving his beloved homestead, he leads a totally primitive existence deeper in the forest, hurt and angry, until a loyal friend finds him and Denny realizes it's time to come home.

About the Author
Warren Troy has always been an avid outdoorsman and adventurer. As a child, his favorite activity was spending time at the family cottage in the Catskill Mountains, exploring the forest and observing wildlife: deer, bear, and birds. When his family moved to Southern California, Warren turned his interests to the desert, roaming in that environment as enthusiastically as he used to traipse through the old Eastern woods. The fulfillment of his passion for nature was when he moved to Alaska. He has had a love affair with the state ever since, enjoying hunting, fishing, and ultimately homesteading up beyond the head of Kachemak Bay for five full years with his wife, Joyce. Warren's deep love for Alaska, and his experiences there, are the inspiration for his Alaska wilderness adventure books, and he has become known for his written work. Warren and Joyce live in a cabin in Willow, Alaska, 70 miles north of Anchorage, surrounded by spruce and birch, enjoying the flow of the seasons, living a peaceful life of Alaska adventure writing.

Warren Troy has done it again. In The last Homestead he has written a gripping novel I literally couldn’t put down, filled from the first page with real Alaska. From people who’ll give you the shirt off their backs, a place to stay overnight, and insurance to those who’ll take your shirt and leave you to find your way out of the wilderness alone (maybe hoping you won't), to the realities of bear and moose threat on the one hand to a fox friend on the other, to the snow and vagaries of reliance on machines to get from place to place in winter weather----it’s all there. When Gwen leaves her mark on Denny Caraway, it’s more of an impression than bear claws could leave, taking a total loner and bringing him to a more social level. And then he swings way out again to a feral being only to have her draw him back again. See how she does it. Read the book.
