“A divorce that cruelly unearthed lies, deceit, theft, abuse of trust and power, that severs a union with a partner who blithely alienates all loved ones, all family members; a final act of separation which, for spite and spite’s sake alone, drags its opponent savagely across ten hideously pocked-marked months with idiotic wrangling; an absurd process that can, and did, empty the pockets of all but the gleeful lawyers; the outcome of which could seemingly hurl its survivor into the blackest abyss of despair or propel them, now unfettered, to the top of the highest mountain.
I landed upon a mountaintop. Literally.”
So begins Benjamin’s personal account of his forray into living off the grid in a cabin on a mountainside in Northern Idaho. This recalls his first year up in his new home after a disasterous marriage, peppered with anecdotes of his life in the Navy and his life over the road as a long-haul trucker. An engaging read that will intrigue, amuse, and leave you longing for more!
“This is hands down one of the best books I have read in a long time. The author paints a beautiful story that truely brings his audience right up to the top of his beautiful mountain oasis. The cast of characters is heartwarming. This book is a Must Read!!! Page after page I just can’t put it down. Benjamin Scribner has a true gift for storytelling. Well done! I can’t wait for the next book.” ~Amber
“This book zeroed in on all that a lot have given thought to but never had the nerve to try. It detailed the ingenuity that is required to exist without the luxuries most take for granted. With humor, self-deprecation, visual imagery, optimism, and a tale like told around a campfire the book was hard to put down and hard to finish because I didn’t want to come to the last page and not have more to read.” ~Mary K.
