Overview

Frozen Rivers is another spellbinding memoir in Elisabeth Weigand's YukonWild Series. In our times of pain and suffering, this series brings to the reader something beautifully positive. A life when lived with purpose and virtue can be long enough. Each chapter is steeped in the author's love of wilderness, her desire for adventure and her familiar intimacy with the land. Weigand orients the reader to the merits of slowing down the pace of life and reflecting on the significance of the smallest of our decisions.

Frozen Rivers takes people to one of the purest places in Canada's northern landscape: A distant fly-in trapline where Weigand and her partner spend the first of their winters understanding and exercising traditional life skills, adjusting to nature's regulations and discovering the bliss of shared seclusion and the satisfaction when less is more. Her writing is evocative and poetic, humorous and informative, held together with atmospheric descriptions of the untamed heart of the Yukon Territory. A land that is bigger than us.

About the Author

Born and raised in Frankfurt, Germany, Elisabeth Weigand's passionate spirit for the outdoors drew her to the wild and vastly untouched wilderness in Canada's True North, the Yukon. She left her academic life and MA in Linguistics behind and immigrated in 1993 to live a life more simply, closer to nature, surrounded by all its glorious flora and fauna. Weigand delights in sharing her love for the wilds with anyone open to nature's miracles. Either with memoirs and travel blogs in her YukonWild Series. Or on excursions of her company Black Bear Wilderness Adventures, where she offers interpretive wilderness trips, remote cabin rentals and Yukon-wide transportation. Weigand lives close to the Yukon River, on a spacious, rural property with her horse Amigo and her dog Sarafina. Learn more about her and the YukonWild Series at www.elisabethweigand.com
