Becoming Wild is available in both print and e-book formats. When I saw it at Village Books in Bellingham while Wayne and I were attending a Whatcom Community College class on independent publishing (we learned that's the "new" term for self publishing), I knew I wanted the print version to save for my personal library about British Columbia.
Nikki, Micah (a man she met during survival school), and her feral cat Scout planned and lived a survivalist lifestyle that spanned two island locations and more than a year in the rainforest coast of the Broughton Archipelago. When the trailer at Native Anchorage on Village Island didn't turn out to be liveable, they erected their own primitive shelter. Life that first winter was a struggle just to find enough food.
When the adventure was done, Nikki and Micah parted ways. Nikki and Scout returned to the city, but life there was so foreign after living in nature. She returned to Echo Bay, bought property from Billy Proctor and built a log cabin of her own.
Billy Proctor is a prominent figure in many of the books written about the region.
