North of Reliance

Bush Planes, Sled Dogs, and a Homestead on the Hoarfrost River
By Dave Olesen
Raven Productions, $16.95

This is the story of why Dave Olesen and his wife Kristen choose to live 10 miles north of Reliance in the Northwest Territories of Canada. Located on a small river called the Hoarfrost, they built a homestead, made connections and found ways to make a living. Whether dog sledding across Great Slave Lake at 50 below, musing philosophically on the values of a northern life, visiting the nearest neighbors 20 miles away, or piloting a bush plane over millions of acres that rarely feel a human footstep, Dave shares both ordinary and life-changing moments with humor, insight and good writing.Breana Roy
