Description: This book tells the true story of a man and his wife's adventures in the Queen Charlotte Islands.
Many people dream of leaving the anxieties and complexities of modern society to live a simple life. Neil Carey and his wife, Betty, made this dream a reality, trading the comforts and conveniences of life in Southern California for a cedar cabin in the Queen Charlottes. This book tells of their adventures establishing a home in the wilderness, beachcombing lonely beaches, exploring abandoned Haida villages, fishing for gigantic coho salmon, logging in the rain-swept Long Inlet, and surviving encounters with black bears and a raging hurricane.
