I feel very fortunate to have "met" Miles when his first book came out, and I have followed, with great interest, his life via the subsequent books. Here is a guy who, as a young man, had a dream, and the "cajones" to follow it. I have told others ...
written at the time at 22 years old as I feel it. It took 20 years to get in print as I had to wait for the computer age to arrive, then rewrite for the 4th time the handwritten book.We follow Alaska homestead years, the pipeline years. There are native rights and land use changes. Conservation is a word I never heard in the beginning, nor groups like Greenpeace. Animal rights issues. Kennedy years through the Obama years, and what that meant. How it affected life in the wilds, like through federal park expansions Carter started. Gun rights issues come up and change. The country moves from following the constitution to not. Gas and oil is discovered under my stomping grounds. There are forest fires and floods. Things that can effect anyone in any occupation . The series is how do any of us be happy, make a living, come to terms with who we are, compared too obligations and laws? I follow a dream, and hope readers see through my dreams, what the reality of being true to yourself cost, and what the rewards are.I had no set plan when beginning, except recording what happens. I do not know ahead of time what the next book will be about. I'm simply writing, worrying about defining it and putting it in a category whendone. Each book I expect to be the last. Possibly the reader will have to decide what it is about. I feel somewhat like Mark Twain writing of Tom Sawyer. Or Hemmingway writing of the Old Man and the Sea. I feel like the Wizard of Oz or Indiana Jones sometimes. This is not perfect writing from an educated person. More of a story teller using simple words, speaking of what I hope are universal dreams. From the heart, and from a lifestyle formally educated writers, would not have time to live. Perhaps the McCandless story, but written in first person present time. I'd comment, "Dying is easy. It's staying alive that's hard."
