About the Author
I grew up living in a remote area with no electricity, no phones, no TV. If we didn't grow it or shoot it, we didn't eat. Now I live in a slightly remote area in Alaska. Still no electricity, no phones, no local mail delivery, no FedEx or UPS delivery, regardless of their ads and no TV. I do make it to the grocery store about once a month though.

First of all, for those that are interested in the outdoor life, this is something worth having to learn from. This book covers just about anything from basics of canning food to make sure it lasts for longer than intended, to hunting and killing of animals. For those that are hunters, whether experienced or even the curious and wanting to try out hunting for the first time, the references in here for hunt and game is worth looking at. It even provides a helpful tip for making jerky meat from any of the deer, rabbit or other game during the hunting season, as well as a few small little construction projects. What that is... well... you'll have to get the book to find out.
Second, for those that aren't the hunter type or even the outdoor type, this book accommodates you too. This book has little over 400 recipes that are fun to experiment with. This also has neat little things to work with the kids on, such as making homemade playdough, to "slime", to other fun time activities for the kids. Another thing worth noting is for those looking for alternatives to cleaning items and such, this remedies such curiosities. Anything you've wanted to know about making most things homemade will be answered in here. As mentioned with the canning earlier, it can also come handy for those not of the outdoors type.
Finally, there's the story behind the author herself. Normally, not many books will have a biography of themselves without editors working for them to make necessary changes to "appease the public". This literally comes from Rosalyn herself, describing her life up to this point, including the transition from living in the "lower 48" up to moving to Alaska. Apart from the biography she wrote herself, the artwork that's part of the book is also hers. You can't get anymore genuine and original than that, especially with books.
In a nutshell, this book is worth having to read, as well as keep for all the reasons mentioned above. Originality as well as first hand knowledge of everything mentioned in this book is why it's a must have. It's a book you won't be disappointed with.
