To escape the party life of Watson Lake, Tor Forsberg, at age twenty-three, went south to even tinier Iskut where she learned, over several years, to hunt, trap, skin beaver, field dress moose, make bannock and beaver stew, build a log cabin, evade grizzlies—and live with herself. Now back living at Watson Lake, she has recalled her love affair with the bush in North of Iskut: Grizzlies, Bannock and Adventure (Caitlin $24.95), another solo female wilderness memoir in the spirit of Gilean Douglas. Forsberg wrote the book while a columnist for the Yukon News. 978-1894759-42-7
