Here Justine is at her best, sharing with us her romantic and colorful, and sometimes a tad dangerous, life." --Les Blacklock Step off the Gunflint Trail, stride to a high point, and savor the view.

In this engaging memoir, local pioneer Justine Kerfoot chronicled a year's worth of experiences and insights while living on the legendary Gunflint Trail. The unique month-by-month chapters of Gunflint "and Kerfoot's rich memories provide a year-round view of a wilderness life that most of us glimpse only in all-too-short weekend interludes.
