About this product
- DescriptionEpistemologist, adventurer and Alaskan homesteader Sam Wright shares what his world was like from his days as a young boy growing up in a mining town in New Mexico to his life in a remote location rth of the Arctic Circle. His letters to future generations, filled with personal anecdotes and reflections, invite every reader to ponder the changes in our world and our society - both those that have occurred in the past century and those that will occur in the next.
- Author BiographyBorn in the mining camp of Santa Rita, New Mexico, Sam Wright grew up among miners, cowboys and Indians and follows a life perspective he calls an adventure in the exploration of meaning. He earned degrees in biology, anthropology and theology and taught at the University of New Mexico, University of Texas at El Paso and Starr King School for the Ministry. During a sabbatical leave in 1968, Sam and his wife, Billie, moved into the wilderness of Alaska north of the Arctic Circle where they built a twelve-foot by twelve-foot log cabin with simple hand tools on a slope above a mountain lake. Their goal was to experience intimately the traditional Eskimo way of life by emulating it as much as possible. Author of Koviashuvik and Edge of Tomorrow: An Arctic Year, Sam and his present wife, Donna Lee, currently spend their time between Arizona and Alaska.
