Riding the Wild Side of Denali, by Miki and Julie Collins
Identical twins Miki and Julie Collins trap, hunt, fish, and garden in Alaska’s wilderness just north of Denali National Park in Alaska’s vast interior. Their closest companions are loyal sled dogs and Icelandic horses, which eat fish and can withstand northern extremes. Whether taking a 1,900-mile excursion around Alaska by dog sled, defending their huskies from a charging grizzly, or dealing with a panicked horse in an airborne plane, the Collins sisters offer a new perspective on life in the northland. Theirs is an unusual lifestyle even by Alaska standards. In this revised second edition of Riding the Wild Side of Denali (240 pages), the sisters share what has happened in their lives in the past twenty-five years.
