Synopsis: A natural history narrative that describes the author's evolution from a hapless flatlander aching to become a mountain man into an accomplished outdoor writer. Tougias' journey begins when he buys a remote mountain-top cabin in the hopes of becoming a real "mountain man" and gets much more than he bargained for. Misadventure follows calamity in his encounters with wildlife, the locals and nature. Here, he reveals his deepening respect for and connection to the natural world and how this transforms his ideas on all aspects of life. As his love of the outdoors grows, so does his feeling for responsbility and stewardship toward the environment.
