Bogtrotter- notes from a north country cabin
Author: Richard Coffey
Like many Americans at the dawn of the 1980s, Richard and Jeanne Coffey were confused about America's direction on the world stage. It was a good time to learn how to live independently. Bogtrotter is the story of a man and woman who sold most of their material possessions to buy time away from their ordered urban lives to explore simplicity and discover their connection to the natural world. Living in a rude one-room cabin on a northern Minnesota bog, they found remarkable happiness, deep respect for one another and fresh awareness of what it is that brings joy to the human heart.
