Paddling, Mushing and Woodshedding. Audacious women discuss their draw to the wilderness, chronicling their adventures in three diverse memoirs. 
 
Paddling to Winter: Reporter Julie Buckles' story of a year-long canoe honeymoon, traveling the Voyageur Highway from Lake Superior to Wollaston Lake where she and husband Charly Ray stayed for the winter. Filled with humor, love, adventure, and as one reviewer notes -- characters worthy of a Coen Brothers film. 

Welcome To The Goddamn Ice Cube Blair Braverman is a nonfiction writer and dogsledder whose work has appeared in This American Life, The Atavist, Buzzfeed, Orion, The Best Women's Travel Writing and elsewhere. She's training for the Iditarod, a 1100-mile dogsled race across Alaska.

Shelter: Off The Grid In The Mostly Magnetic North When novelist Sarah Stonich (Vacationland, These Granite Islands, Fishing With RayAnne) found herself a newly single mom, she dragged her city-kid teenaged son son north to build a writing retreat on 40 wilderness acres near the BWCAW.
