Over a decade ago, Chris Czajkowski walked into the wilderness, intent on carving a life and a business from the unforgiving terrain in British Columbia's Coast Mountains, twenty miles from the nearest road. Chris transports the reader into the trackless expanse that is her neighbourhood, opening a truly experiential window into the world of those who live alone, far from the concrete canyons that many of us call home. At once a riveting adventure story and a testament to one woman's resourcefulness, this is also a heartfelt elegy to the true wilderness and a cry for its preservation and sensible use.

This is a fascinating and inspirational memoir of a young woman who courageously followed her dream to build from "scratch" a wilderness cabin. I loved the book. . . her writing is good, her detail satisfying, and her shared feelings poignant and honest. . . . truly an amazing feat, successfully completed alone and then opened to the public as a peaceful retreat.
