Description

Auteur

Dave Olesen has a B.A. in Humanities and Northern Studies. A veteran dog musher, he finished the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race eight times. Olesen has lived since 1987 on the northeast tip of Great Slave Lake with his wife, Kristen, and thirty huskies. He works as a bush pilot and guide. Kinds of Winter is his fourth book. His 1994 collection North of Reliance was re-published in a 2016 edition by Raven Productions of Ely Minnesota.



Texte du rabat

After a 15-year racing career, musher Dave Olesen set out to fulfill a lifelong dream, carrying out four solo journeys by dog team, pointing in turn to the south, east, north, and west, and home again to Hoarfrost River in the Canadian north. A unique blend of armchair adventure, personal memoir, and thoughtful, down-to-earth reflection.



Résumé
This book demolishes many of the cliches that imbue writings about bush life, the Far North, and dogsledding. It is a unique blend of armchair adventure, personal memoir, and thoughtful, down-to-earth reflection.
