Synopsis: Now here's a formula for near disaster: East Coast big-city guy, world-traveler, jounalist, and otherwise politically savvy fellow settles down in rural Alaska, where men are many and manly, and women with survival skills are good to count among your friends. He wants to fit in. But how does one learn to be a Mountain Man? By observing, imitating, and making near-fatal mistakes, that's how. The choices a boy has to make. Eat processed food or on-the-hoof food, learn to operate a chainsaw or freeze to death, figure out what a bunny boot is or lose a few toes, and by the way, which end of he barrel points up? This is the story of Doug's first difficult winter in a one-room cabin, trying to stay alive and come out of it with some semblance of Alaska cool. With side-splitting, self-depreciating humor, Doug shares his attempts to elevate himself past his perpetual state of greenhorn-ness by aligning himself with tough sourdoughs to someday claim the title of manly Mountain Man.

From the Publisher: If you have ever needed a little inspiration to get out of your boring, routine life and try something new, have we got a book for you. Doug Fine moved "outside the box" in a most extreme way, by ditching his concrete suburban life and heading up to rural Alaska in his own personal quest to find himself. Now, you don’t have to move to the wilderness to start a new life or to add some adventure to a monotonous existence, but Doug’s hilarious story of how he survived his first winter will show you that anything is possible. After all, Doug is just a regular guy living his dream. NOT REALLY AN ALASKAN MOUNTAIN MAN will make you laugh and look at your own life in a whole new way. Even if you don’t want to leave behind the comforts of home to live your dreams, grab a cup of hot chocolate, cozy up by a warm fire and live a vicarious adventure in Alaska through Doug Fine’s NOT REALLY AN ALASKAN MOUNTAIN MAN.
