Solo invites the reader to embark on a journey into the solitary self, exploring one's evolving relationship with the surrounding environment. This stirring and thoughtful work articulates the rewards of self-reflection, and of silence, deep listening, and meditation.
Solo: Venturing Alone in the Northern Wilds takes us to a place that nearly all of us are afraid to venture-a place where there are no lifelines or emergency exits. Finding himself face to face with challenging waters, grizzlies and extreme weather, Dick Anderson nonetheless discovers an unexpected inner peace and strength that allows him to persevere and survive. As much as it is a journey through the rugged wilds of the north, this is also a powerful journey of the soul.
