To live in a pristine land unchanged by man... to roam a wilderness through which few other humans have passed... to choose an idyllic site, cut trees and build a log cabin... to be a self-sufficient craftsman, making what is needed from materials available... to be not at odds with the world but content with one's own thoughts and company. Thousands have had such dreams, but Richard Proenneke lived them.

Such an amazing story! Very well narrated. I really felt like I was in the woods of Alaska. As a wood worker I really enjoyed all of his thoughts on different project he had to do to survive out there.

Detective Gabriella Versado has seen a lot of bodies. But this one is unique even by Detroit's standards: half boy, half deer, somehow fused together. As stranger and more disturbing bodies are discovered, how can the city hold on to a reality that is already tearing at its seams? If you're Detective Versado's geeky teenage daughter, Layla, you commence a dangerous flirtation with a potential predator online. If you're desperate freelance journalist Jonno, you do whatever it takes to get the exclusive on a horrific story.

This is a very original story using very old techniques of the genre. The large amount of voice actors was nice to keep you on track with the complex story. Each actor was good or better. I would for sure say this was worth a read. Good character development.
