Is it fact, fiction or a bit of both? In the times that it was written any of those possibilities would have been the norm. The media and the ethics of journalism were different then. However, no matter which form of narrative, this is a good read.
Adventure, introspection, the wilds, the mistakes and the triumphs will stir your soul and make your heart pound as you follow his months of wilderness living. A good read for the adventure and bush-craft enthusiast. Enjoy!
I found the book an inspiration. Being an outdoors-man and hunting enthusiast, it is interesting to read about he struggles and successes during his experiment. The author has prophetic insight as to the current world we live in. What a great read. A must for anyone who appreciates minimalism, nature, and the outdoors.
