Hundreds of tips gathered from native and white trappers, pioneers and others who live and thrive in the Northern bush.

About the author BRUCE BATCHELOR: Though he'd lived in the Yukon for five years, the author's unfulfilled dream was to spend a winter in a remote wilderness cabin with a woman he loved, training dog teams and making long expeditions. When he teamed up with backcountry ranger Marsha McGillis in 1980, the (mis)adventures could begin! Bruce Batchelor came to the Yukon in 1973, planning to stay just long enough to earn money for a trip to Europe.Instead, he fell in love with the wilderness and its people, and stayed for most of the next eight years.

REVIEWER'S COMMENT: "A real page turner. I couldn't wait to see what was around the next bend in the trail as I raced through this delightful read. An instant classic about Canada's North as experienced by two plucky southerners." -- David Pettigrew, filmmaker, adventurer and sourdough
