In 1947, Bradford Angier and his wife, Vena, both disillusioned with city life, decided to attempt living off the land, trading Boston for the frontier town of Hudson's Hope, British Columbia. With their Irish wolfhound in tow, they headed out to try the simple life for just one year — and ended up lingering far longer than originally planned. The Angiers' rough-hewn adventures resulted in a series of best-selling books, including How to Stay Alive in the Woods. We Like It Wild details the struggles and rewards of dwelling in a frontier town, as the Angiers cope with challenges from season to season, with only each other to rely on. The book is full of evocative descriptions of a fierce yet beguiling landscape and packed with practical tips for surviving with just the basics. It's a must-read for everyone who has ever dreamed of leaving it all behind and getting back to nature.
