Mountain View: Painful experiences shared in birth, hunting
There I was, in the throes of labor. Covered in sweat, holding the hand of a girlfriend. Trying to remember to breath, relax and not work against myself. The complex hormones of labor made my body shake. It was the hardest work I've ever done or probably ever will do — giving birth.

COASTAL FORAGER: It’s almost time to start fiddling around
Well, I'm jumping the gun on this one, but I want to make sure you don't miss the fantastic adventure of finding fiddlehead ferns during the brief time they're available. There is an urgency to my mission because the timing is quite precise. One must locate the plant while it is very young and before the frond unfurls. If harvested too late, the fern could poison you. Yes, there truly is a James Bond- dismantle th...

There isn’t much space to write on a postcard, so I also sent this email to tell you more about Kodiak. Our island is in the middle of the Pacific Ocean just South of...
