Recommended to Emily by: Book club
Read from August 13 to 19, 2012

This was a book club pick. It was not something I would have picked off the shelf so I like that book club introduces (*okay..forces) me to read books outside my comfort zone. That being said, I didn't really like this. It is a journal style (some reviewers have said it reads like a blog) about a winter spent in Montana. The author picks up and moves with his girlfriend to live off the grid in the freezing cold Montana winter. Did I mention they had never seen snow? Yep. Rude awakening. Most of the book is dedicated to the gathering of wood, chopping down trees, generally surviving the elements in a house they rent. Honestly, if I would have read this snuggled in a blanket during the winter months I may have liked it more...
Read this if:
you like nature books
you are an outdoorsy person
