KIRKUS REVIEW

The interior of northern British Columbia is a wilderness but the author was brave enough to bring his city-raised bride, an interior decorator from Vancouver, to live there. His account of their arrival and reception at Vanderhoof is the start of more than one but Gloria proves she can take the bush in stride, whether it is living on the remots Batanal Range, surviving an early spring -- which turned out to be deep winter -- trip, learning to live with a chronte appendix, taking over the rehabilitation of an for a new home. There were grizzlies and moose to beware of, there was best to paise and drives, there was Panhandle and his new wife who became good friends; there were floods and blizzaries to endure; and there was Pan and Betty's hazardous recovery from a series of exposures to death. A rough and ready account of the delights -- and excliments of hardy and hearty living, this is a good accompaniment to the author's previous (1955 and 1951).
