Wildfire in the Wilderness by Chris Czajkowski
Book DescriptionCzajkowski became well known to Canadians through her correspondence with Peter Gzowski on CBC's Morningside, where she described her initial foray into the wilderness near Lonesome Lake. The letters were expanded into a best seller. From there she moved to virgin ground at Nuk Tessli, where she has lived for nearly 20 years. 'Wildfire in the Wilderness', describes recent visitors to her world -- filmmakers, media people, pilots, friends and paying guests -- and a technician, who flew in to connect her cabin to the Internet, despite the vagaries of a home made power system and winds that can make short work of a satellite dish. Her stories of the many people she meets are as engaging as her meditations on the solitude she loves.
