    Oh my gosh !! If you never have read this book you should !! It is really a good true story about a family in the "real" wilderness of Canada. I first saw the story in the MENS in the 80's and later the book came out. I remember asking our library if they had a copy and they said they didn't think it was "suitable" reading. Never could figure out what they meant by that. A good family story with nothing you couldn't read aloud to your family in the least. I hope you are able to buy this book..I do have a copy and like to lend it out to other homesteaders to read on occassion. Good Luck and Happy Reading !!

    Also have your library do a search and get the book for you on Interlibrary Loan. Any library can do this for you.
