“A wild adventure.” —Independent

A man, an axe, and a dog named Fuzzy . . . let the adventure begin! Trapped in a job he hated and up to his neck in debt, Guy Grieve’s life was going nowhere. But with a stroke of luck, his dream of escaping it all to live in the remote Alaskan tundra suddenly came true. Miles from the nearest human being and armed with only the most basic equipment, Guy built a log cabin from scratch and began carving a life for himself through fishing, hunting, and diligently avoiding bears. Packed with adventure, humor, and insight, this is the gripping story of an ordinary man learning the ways of the wild.

“Captures Grieve’s maverick adventure, and has an energy and pace to it, a compelling, rushing quality, like a dog sled chasing through the snowscape . . .” —Scotsman

“Hilarious.” —Daily Mail

“Riveting, well-written, amusing, and sometimes deeply affecting.” —Glasgow Herald
