This woman, Chris Czajkowski, is one of my heroes. For thirty years, she’s lived off the grid alone in the wilderness with dogs for company, built her own cabins, and written her books. I thought of Chris tonight as I was reading Farley Mowatt’s classic, Lost in the Barrens. I saw her present at Sechelt Writer’s Festival years ago, and I wondered how she survived the raging forest fires this summer.
Here you can read her experience living through the wildfires in northern BC.
I see she has a book tour in BC this fall. If you can make it to any of her readings or presentations, please come out and support this amazing woman.
