    A Scotsman Braves the Far NorthWhat a good book! It is full of rich detail and truth which made it interesting. The author loved those dogs and the twin moose calves and even the female wolf who had to be put out of her misery. The author was fortunate to make friends with Don's family. Because the author genuinely likes people people like him and he was able to write a enjoyable book. I have always wanted to go to Alaska. However, thanks to this book I realize anything but a cruise ship tour or plane ride would be far too dangerous.

    At first, I was disappointed that the main character was going to Alaska for a short-term experience intending to "sell" his experience through a column and then flying out colleagues to document said experience for the purpose of self-promotion. It was almost like a lie. He was not creating a homestead for his family in the wilderness. But after I set that aside and took his experiences for what they were worth, I fell for the bond he created with the animals.

    An excellent read. Guy Grieve a journalist for The Scotsman finds himself lost in the mundane struggles of life and knowing he is soon to become redundant, leaves Scotland and his wife to head into the Alaskan Bush. This is the story of how a tenderfoot survived a Winter in Alaska.
