Ken Hedmark’s story will capture the interest of anyone who loves the Wisconsin Northwoods, or any wild place for that matter. You’ll read along as Hedmark remembers his youth growing up seven miles from the closest neighbor, telephone, power line, and black-topped road. Those were simpler times, though as you’ll discover not always easy and sometimes dangerous.

He spent the evenings of eleven winters in the light of kerosene lamps before his parents purchased their first electric generator in 1963. It was a lifestyle of subsistence, on a small farm that provided a few domestic animals and in a forest that provided wild berries and fish and game, and where a having fun fishing, hunting, and gathering was secondary to bringing food to

This is an engaging collection of stories that include childhood play, a pet bear, a fire tower, hunting, fishing, trapping, and gathering; of log drives and trees and CCC camps; of a near-death adventure on ice and camping at eighteen below, to name just a few.
