Can a middle-aged urban dwelling man survive on his own in the Alaska wilderness? Denny Caraway is going to find out. Casting off city life that has become completely unsatisfying–that is killing his spirit–he journeys north to become a homesteader in the Alaska bush. Denny is pushed to his limits, physically and spiritually, while carving out a life in the trees, experiencing daily adventures that could end his life if he doesn’t make the right choices. Despite the danger, he comes to love his new home and almost everything involved there. But he learns that bad human behavior is everywhere, as he deals with neighboring Alaskan homesteaders. After the peace and solitude of his homestead life is threatened, Denny must make life-changing decisions to maintain his cherished freedom.

Warren Troy Extended Bio Born in New York State, Warren Troy has always been an avid outdoorsman. As a child, his favorite activity was spending time at the family cottage in the Catskill Mountains, exploring the forest and observing the wildlife -- the deer, bear and birds. When his family moved to Southern California, Warren directed his interest for the natural world to the desert, roaming that environment as enthusiastically as he used to traipse through the old eastern woods. The fulfillment of his passion for nature was when he moved to Alaska. He has had a love affair with the state ever since, enjoying the hunting, fishing, and amazing wilderness, ultimately homesteading up beyond the head of Kachemak Bay for five full years with his wife, Joyce. Warren Troy's deep connection with Alaska and his experiences there are the inspiration for the Alaska wilderness adventure books he has written, and he has become known for his work. Warren has this to say about his writing: I suppose you could say I am a late bloomer when it comes to writing novels. As a young man, I enjoyed writing short stories and poetry, but it wasn't until my late middle age that I was ready to write and publish actual books. "It may be that it took me until I had a backlog of experience to rely on, so that my work contains what I feel is needed to write a good story, but at this point, I know it was Alaska itself, this incredible wild land that brought it out in me. "It is gratifying to know my words are appreciated. I have received many positive reviews and reports from readers, the latest from a woman in Queensland, Australia. "My first Alaska based book, Trails, received honorable mention in the Alaska Professional Communicators writing contest in 2011, as did my book, Jester: Memoirs of a Retired Hippie, in the 2014 San Francisco Book Festival Writing Competition in the fiction section. I also received second place for my short story, Ice in the Wind, which I entered in an Alaska Writers Guild contest. "It brings me much pleasure when my stories are enjoyed by those who have read my books. To share my Alaska with others is my primary goal." Warren and Joyce now live in a cabin in Willow, Alaska, seventy miles north of Anchorage, surrounded by spruce and birch, enjoying the flow of the seasons, living a peaceful life."
