You're in for a special treat about the true-life story of how Ron, a city boy, came to live 100 miles deep in the Canadian wilderness; how he mastered the discipline of homesteading and an off-grid self-sufficient lifestyle in Maine in preparation for the move to the bush. Join us for an eclectic blend of storytelling ranging from Ron's adventures of bicycling across the United States to his winter hike of the 2100+ mile long Appalachian Trail.

Experience the terror of being surrounded by wildfire & being touched by a bear. Discover what life is like working in a remote exploration camp. Enjoy firsthand accounts of some of the most breathtaking wildlife encounters. Entertaining & enlightening, the narrative is at times amusing while at other times harrowing.  Appealing to readers with an outdoors, adventurous spirit, people with an off-grid, self-sufficiency bent, and the dreamers’ content to read about adventure.

You’ll be inspired to “take the road less traveled" simply by the 100+ images that supplement the book.

About the author: Living off grid since 1980, Ron and his wife, Johanna, have spent the better part of their lives "unplugged." As part of the back-to-the-land movement that originated in the 70's, they have spent their adult years living the homestead dream.
