The Silence of the North

05th December 2005

The Silence of the NorthOlive Fredrickson was an amazing woman! She spent most of her life in the Canadian wilderness, and not only survived there, but thrived. Olive faced angry moose, bears and wolves, fought against death from starvation and cold, and lost loved ones. But she never lost her love of the north country. One of my favorite quotes from Olive comes near the end of the book: “. . . if there is any greater satisfaction in life than hard work done for a worthwhile purpose and obstacles overcome that seem too formidable to surmount, I have not found it and do not know what it is. And if much of my life has been hard, it was also wonderful.”
