One hundred years ago, Henry Thoreau wrote of the charms and joys of simple living in the woods, away from the hectic nuisances of our city civilization. His philosophy has become part of our American heritage, as sound today as the day he first set it down. But his advice on the simple life has seemed too rugged for later generations, brought up in cities, pampered with conveniences and scared of nature. Vena and Brad Angier were fed up with their city bound existence and longtime readers and admirers of Thoreau, they set out to see if his discoveries were valid today. This is the account of two wilderness-loving tenderfeet, who headed for the tall timber on the banks of the Peace River, British Columbia. There near the trading post of Hudson Hope they found their Walden. How they made themselves ‘At Home in the Woods,’ stocked their cabin, met their interesting wilderness neighbors who helped them get settled and who saw them through their first winter makes honest and exciting reading. The city-bred Angiers found out that Thoreau was right when he wrote: “What people say you can not do, you try and find you can.”

If you’ve ever dreamt of building your own log cabin, or wondered if or how it could be done, you’ll find the answers and inspiration here. Half personal narrative, half how-to, A Home From The Woods details the methods used for four different log cabin projects: Uncovering and Restoring A Standing Cabin; A Hand-hewn Cabin; Building with Rounded Logs; and Taking Down and Recreating An Original Log Cabin. That straightforward advice is countered with a first person narrative as the author relates his young family’s experiences and misadventures completing these projects. With little finances and less know-how, but plenty of determination and a little creativity, they proved again and again that if you long for that idyllic cabin of earth and wood, it can be achieved. And, even if you’ll never set first foot in the forest you’ll be entertained reading what some people will put themselves through for “the simple life” in the country.
