About this book

On a slope above a mountain lake in Alaska's Brooks Range, Sam and Billie Wright built a twelve-by-twelve-foot log cabin with hand tools and named it Koviashuvik-an Eskimo word meaning "living in the present moment with quiet joy and happiness." Sam's account of the twenty years they spent there is both a tale of wilderness survival and an inspiring meditation on the natural world and humanity's relationship to it.
