Synopsis: Alan Dunbarker's adventure story begins in the fall of 2002 when he decides to follow a dream--living in the wilderness. At the age of fifty-two, he finds himself retired, no longer married, and his grown children out on their own. "It was time to plan a trip," he relates. "The chance of a lifetime." The plan would be a four-or-five-week stay in a remote area of Alaska, dropped off by plane. For the author it would be a great chance to experience the wildreness and all of its animals, while "drawing on all my years of experience being in the woods and hunting." While his family was not necessarily enthusiatic about his journey, they understood how important it was to him and knew how meticulously he prepared for everything he did. What began as a thirty-day wilderness adventure now turns into something much more: a man coming to the realization that he must rely on every resource available and every bit of knowledge acquired over the years as he goes into survival mode. This fascinating adventure draws readers into a remote world where only the strong survive, especially those who can retain their humanity under the most adverse conditions.
