Summary

In 1960s inner-city Boston, Stan Zuray had no future. As the Vietnam War took more and more of his friends, and many of those who returned sank further into drugs and despair, Stan looked for meaning and found nothing. His life's purpose lay 3,300 miles northwest, deep in the Tozitna River Valley in the heart of Alaska's frozen interior.

Deadly cold, famine, grizzly bears, and one unruly sled dog with a grudge kept Stan on the knife's edge between survival and death. Humbled by the power of nature, the Boston greaser who was destined for prison found a new life in the wild, where one mistake can prove fatal. This is the true story of Stan Zuray's incredible journey, the reformation of a man's heart and mind in the forbidding darkness of Alaska's endless winter.

no love for his dogs

As an Alaskan dog musher, life long resident, and woodsman, I despise this man's choices and story. This man destroyed dogs and then procided to feed them to his remaining six dogs that survived the Ten dog culling. He went into the back woods absolutely unprepared and unknowlaged as a village bafoon with only city folk education. He endangered not only his girlfriends life as well as his own but dozens of dogs. I will admit I'm only 6 hours into the book but the mistreatment of dogs as well as self wellbeing, this man should have died his first year in Alaska. and he would be lucky to have the end of a quick bullet to the head as he sent many dogs out this way. He shot his own dogs and fed them to the remaining dogs. Anyone with common sense would not allow dogs to breed with the uncertainty of being able to provide for them.
Don't let the summary fool you, as this man is no Dick Prenockie. He was a fool.
But I will say the author wrote this story well and is a great writer.

An amazing story of what if

I first heard of Stan on his show and learned of this book and had to read it. I would liked to hear more details of his struggles from the lower 48 to Alaska, perhaps another book will cover this. Entertaining. The reader did a fine job.

good listen

Love the story. Although the narrator was good I wish it had been narrated by Stan Zuray himself.

Good book

listened to the audio version, book was great, the person reading, not so great, could have done without the reenacting of character voices. Just read the story..
