This autobiography is one of those "can't put it down" reads, yet each chapter is strong enough to stand alone. 13 Chapters of situations in the life of a man, woman and their 7 children living in the deepest wilderness of the bush of Alaska and aboard tiny fishing boats in the unforgiving Alaskan waters!
To read of the near maniacal-like quest of a scared and desperate young boy, born into wealth, suddenly orphaned and reduced to a state of homelessness at 16 as he tries to fill the void inside is in itself captivating.
But the real story begins when he, with a wife and two toddlers end up stranded for 18 months on a desolate island off the shores of Alaska, where he begins to find his way as a man is absolutely one of the most incredible stories I have ever heard or read...and that is only chapter one.
How he,his wife, and now 7 children, after 20 plus years of living in the "bush" staving off bears, wolves and moose, while surviving sub-zero winters to emerge victorious is beyond my wildest imagination. Dennis J. Nelson... Nashville, TN
