From the Author:

After book 1 I thought I might be done! I had accomplishedsort of, what I had set out to do, write a mountain man book in 1stperson, present time! I was not happy with the outcome in terms of how I wantedit to be. Readers found it funny. AreClint Eastwood movies, 'funny?' Not what I expected. We all have a goodlaugh! I have been writing all my life, even In school to girlfriends. 20 yearson book 1. I simply kept on writing.
The adventures continued as I built the houseboat and livedoff it. I traveled, trapped from it, spent the winter on it. I got asked a lotof questions as I did art shows and told my bear stories. I understood my lifedid not read like the average persons. No rent, no bills, no ID, no bankaccount, no credit. 'Off the Grid' has not been coined yet. I was more of a 60'stune in drop out hippie freak. Only without the drugs.
It is boom times in Alaska during the pipeline days. Moneywas everywhere. I was unaware at the time these are unique, never to berepeated times! I was lucky to be able to sell all the art I created in a yearat a single 3 day show! This allowed me to grub stake myself for another yearinto the wilds. I was able to sell 5,000 copies of book 1 on my own withouthardly trying. It's not about the money. I do not know  why I write. I repeat "Because I am a writer."
I decided if I end up with a series, I got the idea for titlesfrom 'Born Free' about Elsa the lion. There was 'Living Free' and 'Forever Free.'I'm still a teen, so the idea of ,Going, being, doing, and forever, 'Wild,'would make a series title theme. I already did the 'Going' part in book 1. NowI have arrived! "Gone' made sense for a sequel. Again, I had no preconceived planto do even more in the series. Just one step at a time as I live it. Written infirst person, present time, not as memoires, but as I feel it and live it.(thus the whole series has taken a lifetime of over 50 years) This second inthe series took only 5 years to write compared to the 20 years the first booktook. I had to wait for the computer age to turn all the notes into a usefulformat. First  had to learn how to use acomputer. But that's another book.

From the Inside Flap:

When you step into this map you have left civilization. This area is so different from the civilized world, that it is like coming to a different planet. In an area that covers about 400,000 square miles, (Alaska's interior) the largest community is Fairbanks. Fairbanks has a population of about 40,000. There are more communities on this map with under 100 people then over 100 people. There are more bears then people on this map. More salmon run up the river in one month then the number of tourists the entire state gets in 10 years. If you got lost and lived long enough, it would be possible to spend the next 20 years walking, and never see another human. This is a world where if you arrive in summer without bug dope, or winter without mukluks, it might cost you your life. This is a world where if you get in trouble you do not dial 911, and the laws of nature, not man, rule supreme. Disobeying man's laws can get you in prison. Disobeying natures laws can get you killed. The two sets of laws do not always agree. The words on this map are not just words, but dreams. The empty space between the words are a way of life , where we get berries, fish, hunt, trap, live, and die.
