    1 thought on “Cabin at Singing River: One Woman's Story of Building a Home in the Wilderness

    1. This was an interesting read, and the descriptions were both poetic and detailed Unfortunately, for me, the book didn t flow I understand that the basis of the book lay in letters sent for publication in a newspaper, and that is how it read It was disjointed and therefore you felt a distance from what should have been a much personal perspective.There s no doubt that this woman is a brave and resourceful person, as well as being uniquely interesting, and she has written other books since It wil [...]

    2. I loved Cabin at Singing River I read it in a very leisurely way There was no strong plot to pursue or drama to keep me up at night Instead, author Chris Czajkowski captivated me with literary finesse When I finally finished, I wanted I walked every mountain trail with her, taking in the splendid vistas, the clouds parting, the pounding waterfalls I chuckled through her humorous description of the visiting friend s complaints on a tough hike I envied her awesome adventure, to spend so much deli [...]

    3. Rating Clarification 2.5 StarsNot one of the better going back to nature reads out there, IMO for that, I recommend the books of Helen Hoover Czajkowski s book did have it s moments, but overall it covered too many technical aspects of building her cabin and not enough of her actual wilderness life lived in it.Still, I ve got to admire her spirit, hard work and dedication to living her dream in the Canadian wilderness.

    4. Good book in my read everything to do with remote huts and shacks in the hope of finding out why we have bought one category However Amazing woman, amazing job Glad we don t get bears or wolves Eagles are nice though.

    5. The beginning third was great As someone else pointed out, the book has a strange flow, jumping big periods of time, then focusing on certain events Overall, it was cool to get a feel for the Tweedsmuir area, and I d consider reading one of her other books, but I wasn t blown away.

    6. I loved this book There are beautiful thoughts in there, wonderful desciptions of animals and landscapes I d really like to go to Canada one day.

    7. Not impressive I read this because I thought it might be appropriate before reading her second book, Diary of a Wilderness Dweller, which I m finding much better so far.
