I've read thousands of books in my lifetime and this one is still the title that comes instantly to mind whenever someone asks me to name my favorite book. My husband loves it too. It's a simple story about how a young inexperienced man volunteered to winter over at Yellowstone taking care of a fish weir and trying not to die in the process. It's funny and warm and a lovely read.
Fromm’s memoir is about seven solitary winter months spent in the remote Selway-Bitterroot wilderness working for the Forest Service, where he guards a salmon nursery. He has a surplus of free time on his hands, but very little wilderness experience. Mostly he walks the land and observes. He learns a lot about survival, but even more about solitude. Fromm’s writing evokes the beautiful wild scenery as it changes through the seasons and his equally interesting and evolving inner landscape.
