About the Author

William L. Sullivan is the author of a dozen books about Oregon, including "Oregon Trips & Trails" and a popular "100 Hikes" series. "Listening for Coyote," Sullivan's journal of his 1000-mile solo backpacking trek across the state, was a finalist for the Oregon Book Award in creative nonfiction and topped the New York Times' year-end review of travel books. He and his wife Janell Sorensen live in Eugene, Oregon during the winter, but they spend summers far from roads, mail, and telephones at their log cabin in Oregon's Coast Range.

More About the Author

The author of three novels and a dozen nonfiction books, Sullivan grew up in Salem, Oregon. He completed his B.A. degree in English at Cornell University under Alison Lurie, studied linguistics at Germany's Heidelberg University, and earned an M.A. in German at the University of Oregon. He reads in a dozen languages, plays the pipe organ, and enjoys backcountry ski expeditions.
Sullivan is known in the American West as the author who backpacked more than a thousand miles across Oregon's wilderness in 1985. His journal of that adventure, "Listening for Coyote," has since been chosen one of Oregon's "100 Books," the most significant books in state history.
In summer he writes at the log cabin that he and his wife Janell Sorensen built by hand in the wilds of Oregon's Coast Range, more than a mile from roads, electricity, and telephones. The rest of the year they live in Eugene, Oregon, where he volunteers to promote libraries and literature.
A list of Sullivan's books, speaking engagements, and favorite adventures is at www.oregonhiking.com .

As someone who has grown up romanticizing the log cabin life, I absolutely loved this modern cabin story. It's typical Bill Sullivan - funny, historically informative, easy to read, and entertaining. Anyone who is a fan of Bill's will enjoy learning more about his family. Anyone who is new to Bill's work will want to read more after reading this book.

Sullivan takes into his family and lets you experience the mystery, joy, and sorrow over the years of creating his cabin in the woods. Wish I could have lived this story and in reading it, in a way I did!

There are 2 types of people in the world: those who love the idea of living in a log cabin and those who don't. If you belong to the prior group, you'll love this book.

This book is loosely comparable to "One Man's Wilderness", a story about a man who builds a cabin in the wilds of Alaska and lives in solitude. I found this book to be much more interesting. I guess that's the difference between non-fiction and creative non-fiction?

At any rate, if you read this review Mr. Sullivan...kudos!

I recently completed this book and really enjoyed it. It's an easy read, full of nature and the wilderness, challenge and adventure, humor, and a warm family story. Though it is a light read, it still has its serious passages, reflective of those things in life we all face with family. Highly recommend it to those looking for a good, quick read with the backdrop of the great Oregon wilderness. With all its animal "characters", it really is a hoot!

Bill Sullivan is an excellent writer and he is willing to share his family life in the cabin. This book will keep you reading. To find out what he has done with the cabin and who coming to visits in the woods. I've read all of his other books and they are outstanding.

I highly recommended his "cabin fever" book if you are an adventure and enjoy the outdoor life.
