Denny Caraway, Alaskan homesteader, returns to his Lanyard Creek cabin after many months living a meager, primitive life deep in the Alaskan wilderness, following his beloved wife's death, which had filled him with overwhelming pain and anger. It almost proves his end, until a loyal friend finds him and acts as a sign for Caraway to come home. Rejoining the small circle of people he had left behind, their love and support serve to renew Denny's outlook on life. But, the murder of a young friend is a harsh reminder that life is still the bearer of sadness as well as joy, and Caraway is compelled to seek revenge against an old nemesis. Following what he sees as his destiny, Denny Caraway gives up the idea of love and family to continue his life as a solitary man, living on his remote homestead.
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.
