In my last review, I mentioned how I like to read multiple books by authors I enjoy. One of those authors is Chris Czajkowski.

Here's a list of her books in the order they were written. The ones with stars (*) I've already read.
Crusoe of Lonesome Lake. Trudy's life on her own homestead became the story behind Fogswamp: Living with Swans in the Wilderness.
Chris fell in love with the remote wilderness, and was allowed to build her first cabin on the Turner's land. When it came time for them to sell, Chris headed farther into the wilderness to find a place where she could start a place of her own. The result was Nuk Tessli, a wilderness resort that she built from the ground up.
And the River Still Sings, her newest book, follows Chris's life from England, around the world, into Canada, through her Nuk Tessli experience, and up to the present at her homestead property on Ginty Creek. I enjoyed reading this book because it tied all the previous books together. It included now experiences and perspectives, so it gave a fresh look to older stories.
Chris's books can be read in any order, but if you haven't read any, you might want to start with some of the older titles and save And the River Still Sings for later. If you can read only one, this is it.
