Description
The author was a businessman from New York who got tired of the "Big City" life and was unhappy for some time. He decided to move as far away from that environment. Taking only his dog, some gear, and an open heart he travelled to Canada. During this trip, he found an island of epic beauty and decided to purchase it. His story tells of his difficulty trying to adapt to such the harsh environment. The local population were Native Americans who gave him the name "Crazy White Man" for making the changes that he did. Dick Morenus, New York radio and magazine writer, took to the Ontario bush country to shed his ulcers. After writing this hilarious account of his six-year transition from tenderfoot to woodsman-guide, he returned to city life to teach, write, and lecture, CHICAGO TRIBUNE -- "As a story of the indomitable spirit of men and women pitted against the overwhelming forces of nature, 'Crazy-White-Man' is an inspiring one; as a tale of pure adventure, it will be hard to put down ... a book that is a little classic of the rugged life." CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR -- " ... one of the best tales of escape from city pressures ... It is a vivid close-up of the Ontario bush--written down with the vividness and gaiety of a man who knew he was free." NEW YORK TIMES -- "Respect for Mr. Morenus' courage and hardihood grows with every page we read . . . it emerges as a valuable addition to the small number of books about the Canadian bush." COLORADO SPRINGS FREE PRESS -- "Anyone from young to old who has wanted to toss the soft life of today into the discard and live as our ancestors did will enjoy this book. To those who have lived under frontier conditions it will be equally refreshing--and that cannot be said for many of this type."
