Facing sub-freezing temperatures, unfriendly bears, and cabin fever, the Wards find strength in new friends, each other, and the awe-inspiring beauty of “the last frontier.” Just when they finally settle in, a freak accident proves to be the ultimate test of their resolve. Will they be able to survive in this isolated wilderness filled with unseen dangers?

Author Bonnie Ward chronicles an exciting and thought-provoking tale of one couple’s faith in God and dedication to each other through all of Alaska’s curveballs. Winds of Skilak is a true tale of absorbing force, sure to bring out your own sense of adventure.

About the Author:

After fifteen years as a "wilderness wife" in Alaska, award winning author Bonnie Rose Ward now resides with her husband on their farm in central West Virginia. They still maintain a self-sufficient lifestyle, raising goats, chickens, and other barnyard animals, with four dogs and a peacock named George rounding out the menagerie. Bonnie enjoys canning vegetables from the huge gardens sowed by her husband with heirloom open-pollinated seeds, and in her "spare" time, she continues to write her memoirs of the Alaskan wilderness.

Review:

"Sam and Bonnie Ward set out to do something right out of many peoples' dreams. Winds of Skilak is a true account of enthralling force, sure to bring out a reader's own sense of adventure as they eagerly move from chapter to chapter. A thoroughly enjoyable read. Once I got started, I didn't want to stop. Well done." --Paul Johnson for Readers' Favorite

"Ward's spirited debut memoir documents the privations and advantages of life in Alaska's wilderness...Ward strikes a good balance between repetitive daily tasks--foraging, canning meat, making blueberry jam, milking goats and sewing leather garments--and more momentous events, such as an earthquake, a view of the Northern Lights, and run-ins with bears... An often engaging story of outhouses, canned moose and bears--oh my!" --Kirkus Review

"Ward's memoir recounts the adventure of a lifetime . . . Unlike other back-to-the-land narratives, Ward's experiences stand out for the harsh, unforgiving climate and the complete lack of nearby resources to rely on in emergencies." -- Publisher's Weekly
