Cabin Fever

Rich with humor and natural history, this memoir of building a log cabin in the wilds of Oregon's Coast Range takes readers to a warm world of kerosene lamplight, wood stoves, and ghost stories.

Written by a finalist for the Oregon Book Award in creative nonfiction, Cabin Fever recounts 25 summers of back-to-the-earth adventure -- and also solves a murder mystery that had haunted the author's roadless homestead.  Includes 38 pen-and-ink illustrations by Janell Sorensen.

280 pages, 6"x9", 1 map, 38 b/w illustrations
