<h2><b>“a book that is a little classic of the rugged life.” <em>Chicago Tribune</em></h2><br /><br />Have you thought of escaping from life in the “Big City”?<br /><br />Have you dreamed of stepping off the treadmill of work and leaving behind the tedious office job?</b><br /><br />Unhappy with his life in New York, Richard Morenus did just that.<br /><br />Taking along his dog and some equipment he left the humdrum life in the city for the wilderness.<br /><br />When he first arrived in the beautiful backwoods of Canada some Native Americans saw how unprepared he was for his new life and gave him the name Sha-ga-na-she Wa-du-kee, which translates to Crazy-White-Man.<br /><br />The first few months of his life in the bitter cold of a Canadian winter were a fight for survival for Morenus, but as the years went by he became more competent and began to thrive in the beautiful landscape.<br /><br /><em>Crazy-White-Man</em> is a brilliant account of Richard Morenus’ search for a new life in the Canadian wilderness. It is told in a down-to-earth style that is sure to appeal to any reader who dreams of an adventure.<br /><br />“As a story of the indomitable spirit of men and women pitted against the overwhelming forces of nature, ‘Crazy-White-Man’ is an inspiring one; as a tale of pure adventure, it will be hard to put down.” <em>Chicago Tribune</em><br /><br />“Respect for Mr. Morenus’ courage and hardihood grows with every page we read . . . it emerges as a valuable addition to the small number of books about the Canadian bush.” <em>The New York Times</em><br /><br />“Anyone from young to old who has wanted to toss the soft life of today into the discard and live as our ancestors did will enjoy this book. To those who have lived under frontier conditions it will be equally refreshing—and that cannot be said for many of this type.” <em>Colorado Spring Free Press</em><br /><br />“one of the best tales of escape from city pressures ... It is a vivid close-up of the Ontario bush—written down with the vividness and gaiety of a man who knew he was free.” <em>Christian Science Monitor</em><br /><br />Richard Morenus was a New York writer for radio and magazines when he left his old life for a new one in the wilderness of Ontario. He spent the next six years of his life there. His book <em>Crazy-White-Man</em> was first published in 1956 and he passed away in 1968.<br />

<font face="Tms Rmn">It started on a summer afternoon in 1795 when a young man named Daniel McGinnis found what appeared to be an old site on an island off the Acadian coast, a coastline fabled for the skullduggery of pirates. The notorious Captain Kidd was rumored to have left part of his treasure somewhere along here, and as McGinnis and two friends started to dig, they found what turned out to be an elaborately engineered shaft constructed of oak logs, nonindigenous coconut mats, and landfill that came to be known as the Money Pit.</font><br /><font face="Tms Rmn">Ever since that summer day in 1795, the possibility of what might be hidden in the depths of a small island off the south coast of Nova Scotia, Canada, has made it the site of the world's longest, most expensive, and most perplexing treasure hunt. Author D'Arcy O'Connor recounts the fascinating stories and amazing discoveries of past and current treasure seekers who have sought Oak Island's fabled treasure for over two hundred years. It has baffled scientists and madmen, scholars and idiots, millionaires and get-rich-quick schemers, psychics, engineers, charlatans, and even a former president of the United States. The island has consumed the fortunes-and in some cases, the lives-of those who have obsessively set out to unlock its secret. Despite all their efforts, the mystery remains unsolved, and not a single dime of treasure has ever been recovered.</font><br /><font face="Tms Rmn">The present-day search is an archaeological dig exceeding anything ever done anywhere for similar purposes, and it may well result in the discovery of one of the world's richest and most historically significant treasures. But this is also the story of individuals who have dedicated years of their lives to discover what was buried long ago beneath this strange island. They are driven by a lust for gold, by archaeological curiosity, and by their determination to outwit the engineer who was responsible for the Oak Island enigma.</font><br /><br /><br /><br />

<p>After a fifteen-year career as a sled dog racer, musher Dave Olesen turned his focus away from competition and set out to fulfill a lifelong dream. Over the course of four successive winters he steered his dogs and sled on long trips away from his remote Northwest Territories homestead, setting out in turn to the four cardinal compass points—south, east, north, and west—and home again to Hoarfrost River.</p> <p>His narrative ranges from the personal and poignant musings of a dogsled driver to loftier planes of introspection and contemplation. Olesen describes his journeys day by day, but this book is not merely an account of his travels. Neither is it yet another offering in the genre of “wide-eyed southerner meets the Arctic,” because Olesen is a firmly rooted northerner, having lived and travelled in the boreal outback for over thirty years. Olesen’s life story colours his writing: educated immigrant, husband and father, professional dog musher, working bush pilot, and denizen of log cabins far off the grid. He and his dogs feel at home in country lying miles back of beyond.</p> <p>This book demolishes many of the clichés that imbue writings about bush life, the Far North, and dogsledding. It is a unique blend of armchair adventure, personal memoir, and thoughtful, down-to-earth reflection.</p>
