Hundreds of hardy people have tried to carve a living in the Alaskan bush, but few have succeeded as consistently as Heimo Korth. Originally from Wisconsin, Heimo traveled to the Arctic wilderness in his feverous 20s. Now, more than four decades later, Heimo lives with his wife approximately 200 miles from civilization - a sustainable, nomadic life bounded by the migrating caribou, the dangers of swollen rivers, and the very exigencies of daily existence.

If you're interested in guitar making and how to run a business this is a good book. I would have liked it if the author read it but the reader does a fine job. AUDIBLE 20 REVIEW SWEEPSTAKES ENTRY
