♥ Book Title : Nuk Tessli
☯ Full Synopsis : "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."Article| Chris Czajkowski| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : A Wilderness Dweller's Cookbook
☯ Full Synopsis : "One of Chris Czajkowski's first priorities when she arrived at Nuk Tessli, a remote location in BC's Coast Mountains, was to devise a way to bake bread. At first, she lived in a tent and her oven was a simple pile of rocks with a hole in the middle. But as she built her wilderness cabins and started providing for the clients of her wilderness adventure business, she perfected her stone oven and her recipes--and word began to spread of Nuk Tessli and the "Best Bread in the World." From tangy sourdough loaves of freshly ground grain, Nuk Tessli Fruit Bread sweetened with hearty molasses and aromatic spices, to Montreal bagels with an alpine touch, here are inspiring, adventurous recipes that bypass the bread machine. Also included are quick breads and desserts, like a hearty trail mix cake--perfect on a hike--and Nuk Tessli's enigmatic spotted dick, plus a few indispensable recipes for any wilderness dweller (or frugal urbanite), such as fresh yogurt and sprouts. A Wilderness Dweller's Cookbook is not just a collection of recipes; it's also a fascinating account of how a wilderness dweller--in a non-growing climate 20 km from a road, 60 km from a store, and 250 km from a town large enough to have a supermarket--feeds herself and her guests. Of particular interest to readers with their own wilderness dreams will be Czajkowski's descriptions of the logistics of getting wholesome, fresh food to the table in this remote and spectacular location"Article| Chris Czajkowski| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Lonesome
☯ Full Synopsis : "Named for her first home, remote Lonesome Lake in British Columbia's Tweedsmuir Park, Lonesome was a first-rate companion: obedient, mannerly, brave, and occasionally cynical. She did not share her human's love of the wilderness, and wore a martyred expression for most of her life. She would have much preferred a life in the suburbs, "with nice safe walks in the park and a cozy bed inside the house." "Any dog worth her milk bones," Lonesome writes, "must accept her lot in life-fording rivers, swimming lakes, camping out in bitter weather and, worst of all, bears. Yes, bears. It's a wonder I am still around to tell this tale." Lonesome's memoirs paint a vivid picture of her life with Chris, but "I am not a vindictive creature and this book will remain family reading." She focuses on events not already recounted in Chris's books and, as she loftily points out in her introduction, on sharing her unique dog's perspective on their day-to-day life in the wilds."Article| Chris Czajkowski| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Ginty's Ghost
☯ Full Synopsis : "After nearly three decades of wilderness dwelling far from neighbours and roads, with the nearest community accessible only via float plane or days of hiking, Czajkowski purchases a derelict homestead with rough road access at Ginty Creek, an hour’s drive south of Anahim Lake. Although the property is mostly swamp and the packrat-infested buildings are uninhabitable, the location affords beautiful views and abundant wildlife—and the asking price is within her budget. Ginty Creek was named for Ginty Paul, the eccentric recluse who had previously owned the property. Some locals remember Ginty affectionately, while others feared her volatile temper or refused to step into her house for fear of being served “chicken poop tea.” She had an open-door policy to all of her animals—the chickens would sleep with her and the bedroom doubled as a maternity ward for dogs, cats, goats and sheep. Intrigued by the stories, Czajkowski tracks down a pile of Ginty’s letters and documents. These, combined with many fond, bitter and bizarre anecdotes gleaned from interviews with area residents, are all woven into the account. As Czajkowski chronicles the many challenges of settling into her new home, it becomes clear that she and Ginty have more than just a piece of land in common. They also share a spirit of independence and resourcefulness, as well as an unwavering desire for a solitary life immersed in the spectacular landscapes of British Columbia."Article| Chris Czajkowski| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Fire Season
☯ Full Synopsis : "'I've watched deer and elk frolic in the meadow below me, and pine trees explode in a blue ball of smoke. If there's a better job anywhere on the planet, I'd like to know what it is.’ For nearly a decade, Philip Connors has spent half of each year in a small room at the top of a tower, on top of a mountain, alone in millions of acres of remote American wilderness. His job: to look for wildfires. Capturing the wonder and grandeur of this most unusual job and place, Fire Season evokes both the eerie pleasure of solitude and the majesty, might and beauty of untamed fire at its wildest. Connors’ time up on the peak is filled with drama – there are fires large and small; spectacular midnight lightning storms and silent mornings awakening above the clouds; surprise encounters with smokejumpers, black bears, and an abandoned, dying fawn. Filled with Connors’ heartfelt reflections on our place in the wild, Fire Season is an instant modern classic: a remarkable memoir that is at once an homage to the beauty of nature, the blessings of solitude, and the freedom of the independent spirit. Advance praise for Fire Season: ‘A masterwork of close observation, deep reflection, and hard-won wisdom . . . an unforgettable reckoning with the American land’ Philip Gourevitch ‘His adventures in radical solitude make for profoundly absorbing, restorative reading’ Walter Kirn"Article| Philip Connors| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Harry
☯ Full Synopsis : "Living alone in the remote wilderness, Chris Czajkowski has given her dogs a rich life, although not without its difficulties. Often residing in areas accessible only by float plane, the dogs have encountered grizzlies and cougars, slept in the snow, hiked with packs of food and equipment, and occasionally gotten themselves into scrapes, such as becoming lost in the wild or falling through ice into a freezing river. In Harry: A Wilderness Dog Saga, the gregarious and lovable Harry gives his account of their years together at Nuk Tessli and Ginty Creek. The story includes reminiscences about past dogs in Chris's life, including wise Badger, not-so-bright Sport, beautiful Ginger, and Lonesome, Harry's trail-blazing literary predecessor. Together, they trace Chris's off-the-grid life from a dog's-eye view as she established an ecotourism business, built cabins by hand and scratched out a living for herself and the pack. The book captures the humour and wisdom of a canine perspective in a way that is instantly familiar to anyone who has known and loved dogs. Although Harry does not yearn for city comforts like Lonesome, he is often baffled by Chris's incomprehensible doings and illogical priorities. Full of the irrepressible exploits of Harry and his canine companions, Harry: A Wilderness Dog Saga is sure to be a new favourite of animal lovers and anyone who's ever dreamed of packing up and moving far away from city amenities with only a loyal dog for company."Article| Chris Czajkowski| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Cabin at Singing River
☯ Full Synopsis : "Listeners of CBC-Radio's Morningside will remember the extraordinary letters of Chris Czajkowski, who wrote to Peter Gzowski about an unusual adventure: In her late 30s, unskilled in construction techniques, Chris headed into the interior of B.C., cleared a piece of land and built her own home. Much more than a lyrical celebration of the natural world, Cabin at Singing River is a story of courage, perseverance and imagination. From the moment Chris sets her inexperienced foot into an unsteady canoe until the triumphant day she stands back to survey the log house she has built, we are irresistibly drawn into her remarkable journey toward independence. This redesigned edition of a book that sold over 10,000 copies features charming sketches by the author."Article| Chris Czajkowski| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Thank You, Madagascar
☯ Full Synopsis : "'An enchanting book...poignant and passionate.' Geographical 'A captivating and absorbing account.' Sir David Attenborough Madagascar is one of the world’s natural jewels, with over ninety per cent of its wildlife found nowhere else on Earth. Few people knew it better than the pioneering primatologist and conservationist, Alison Jolly. Thank You, Madagascar is her eyewitness account of the extraordinary biodiversity of the island, and the environment of its people. At the book’s heart is a conflict between three different views of nature. Is the extraordinary forest treasure-house of Madagascar a heritage for the entire world? Is it a legacy of the forest dwellers’ ancestors, bequeathed to serve the needs of their living descendants? Or is it an economic resource to be pillaged for short-term gain and to be preserved only to deliver benefits for those with political power? Exploring and questioning these different views, this is a beautifully written diary and a tribute to Madagascar."Article| Alison Jolly| Statement ..."
