In the mid-1950's, Bradford Angier and his wife left their established careers in New York City (he a writer, she a ballet dancer) in order to spend one year living off the land in a remote part of Canada - the Peace River Valley near Hudson's Hope, British Columbia. This year changed their life trajectories forever as Angier found that he could make a living writing articles and books about how to live off the land in the wilderness, and they both discovered their love for wilderness living. Angier became one of the premier authors of this genre.

This book is well written and an interesting story, but it is also a bit dated as it has a distinct air of the 1950’s about it. He uses his wife as the foil for his explanations (‘But how can I find edible plants, dear?’) and also makes 1950’s housewife-in-the-wilderness looking all cute in her flannel shirt with flour on her nose remarks.

It’s still an interesting outdoor adventure story and his techniques for living off the land are still useful for those interested in the topic. ( )
