Trails: Living In The Alaska Wilderness by Warren Troy

Can a middle-aged urban dwelling man survive on his own in the Alaska wilderness? Denny Caraway is going to find out. Casting off city life that has become completely unsatisfying--that is killing his spirit--he journeys north to become a homesteader in the Alaska bush. Denny is pushed to his limits, physically and spiritually, while carving out a life in the trees, experiencing daily adventures that could end his life if he doesn’t make the right choices. Despite the danger, he comes to love his new home and almost everything involved there. But he learns that bad human behavior is everywhere, as he deals with neighboring Alaskan homesteaders. After the peace and solitude of his homestead life is threatened, Denny must make life-changing decisions to maintain his cherished freedom.

About the Author

Born in New York State in 1947, Warren Troy has always been an avid outdoorsman. Even as a youth, his favorite activity was spending time at his family’s cottage in the Catskill mountains, exploring the woods. As an adult, he moved to Alaska and has had a love affair with the state ever since, taking part in the wonderful outdoors: hunting, fishing, and homesteading. In the 1990s, he and his wife Joyce lived for five years as full-time homesteaders in the bush northeast of the head of Kachemak Bay. They built their cabin from native spruce with a hand-held Alaskan MK III chain saw mill—and lived off the land. Warren is a member of the Alaska Writers Guild, and Trails is his second published book. He and Joyce live in their home-built cabin in Willow, Alaska, 70 miles north of Anchorage, surrounded by spruce and birch.
