It chronicles Taylor's two-year apprenticeship as a stockman and backcountry packer in the Frank Church Wilderness in Idaho. Working with land and river outfitters, he tapped into a collective consciousness; a way of thinking that valued a curious and adventurous spirit above all things material and mundane. It is the second book in a 3-part series on 'the 21st Century Mountain Man'. I spent my adult life pursuing all types of adventure all over the world; shark-diving in Burma, caving in Borneo, alpine adventures on big rock and ice, and 'social adventure'​, too. It started in the Marine Corps, blossomed in the international oilfield scene, and matured in the mountains on long solo treks. I crossed the Rocky Mountains alone on foot in the winter of 2013. I spent the next two years immersed in the mountain man way-of-life. I became a stockman and backcountry packer, and learned to leverage my alpine experience to become a self-sufficient trapper. I spent the winter of 2016 alone in an old cabin in the the Frank Church Wilderness, and finished the adventure in early March by walking 33 miles up & over the mountains with nothing more than a tarp, a sleeping bag, and a few bags of instant oatmeal. Leaving my business life behind, I have committed to a life of adventure. I have become an author of non-fiction adventure books. I share my adventures hoping to inspire my peers to challenge themselves and embrace adventure in their lives, too.

    Too much foul language for me. I know these are rough men who do this kind of work, but the use of profanity was too much for my taste. Did not finish the book. It's a good story just the language a problem. Too much foul language for me. I know these are rough men who do this kind of work, but the use of profanity was too much for my taste.

    Round 2 This is not the book the first one was, not even close. But still a good read, I like his style. Gave this one 4 stars simply for the fact there was not a lot of exploration involved.
