"This is home. It is easy enough to locate on paper, or in one's imagination, but on the inconvenient sprawling earth it is difficult to reach."  author Dave Olesen

210 miles of wild freshwater coastline, home to muskox, caribou, and wolverine, stretch to the nearest road heat at Yellowknife. Here's the story of why Dave Olesen and his wife, Kristen, came to choose this life, how they built a homestead and found ways to make a living, and what that choice has meant to the people they have become. Whether dogsledding across Great Slave Lake at 50 below, musing philosophically on the values of a northern life, visiting the nearest neighbors 10 miles away, or piloting a bush plane over millions of acres that rarely feel a human footstep, Dave shares both ordinary and life-changing moments with humor, insight and really good writing.

"This is a beautifully written, often moving account of a couple's quest to live a life together that touches what matters."

- Erik F. Storlie, author of NOTHING ON MY MIND and GO DEEP AND TAKE PLENTY OF ROOT

 

"Dave Olesen has captured a sweet spot in place-based writing where mystery, beauty, paradox, contradiction, intimacy all gel together into an elegant truth."

- Robert Henderson, author of EVERY TRAIL HAS A STORY: HERITAGE TRAVEL IN CANADA

This is a new edition of the book, originally published in 1994.
