Ed Theriau's story
Trapping in northern Saskatchewan, Canada

If only I were seventeen again instead of more than seventy, I would turn my face northward today. With jackpine and white moss around me, a pack of timber wolves howling a successful kill under a cold, bright moon, even with blowing snow rousing me from sleep beside my campfire at some narrows, I would again have the freedom and contentment that only a trapper knows.
It's the best life there is......
