    Author provided Winds of Skilak for review I was totally captivated from the moment that I started reading Winds of Skilak It was such a surprise to me that I became so engrossed in the book so quickly as I usually don t really enjoy the books with families moving to lands that are unexplored or unsettled This is the book that changed my mind I felt as if I was r

    Ugh Giving this book two stars would ve been a stretch so one, it is I m mad I spent actual money on the Kindle version I only did so because the reviews were so good Sorry Bonnie, but your husband was is an ass And no, the rest of us women would not consider ourselves lucky to have him For the record, Nels was an ass, too, and didn t deserve forgiveness for the goat

    OK so I probably got off on the wrong foot with this one On the very first page, where the author s husband springs it on her that he s put the house on the market without asking her first, and decided that they re both going to quit their jobs and move to Alaska, and she s OK with this, I should have noped out of there I mean I guess they had talked about it a year before and

    This book filled a niche for me, I love a good live off the land, survivalist story and I have a special place in my hard for memoirs about this, especially when set in Alaska That being said, the husband in this book is an ass A sexist ass I found myself rooting for the Alaskan wilderness against his stupid, egotistical antics I wished for him to be eaten by a bear, or crashed through thin i

    Not what I expected This book received high ratings but it should be shelved under romance , not homesteading After reading Proenneke I was expecting a similar wilderness account, but from a female perspective The story feels heavily scripted, the author is awfully weepy for a wilderness woman , and the fact that the couple received so much outside help, relied on a car, motorized boats, and well payin
