Soon abandoned by his comfort-loving companion, the restless World War I veteran spent an enlightening year learning--often the hard way--how to paddle and sail on windy lakes, hunt and fish for food, bake rough delicacies in a reflector oven, and build winter-proof shelters.

His how-to descriptions of trapping beaver, mink, and other game are unsurpassed in their detail.Cook also found his way into the border community of Ojibwe and mixed-blood families and a motley assortment of mysterious travelers, game wardens, and loners, including trapper Bill Berglund who adopted Cook until the tenderfoots eagerness to harvest pelts came between them.Cooks adventure climaxed in a 700-mile expedition by dogsled north into Canada, where he reached the limits of his endurance--and just barely lived to tell the tale.For anyone who loves the Boundary Waters or wonders what this rugged region was like not so long ago, Cooks story reveals a world still ruled by nature but on the brink of change.
