Anne LaBastille wrote her best-selling book Woodswoman about the peace and solitude she found in the log cabin she built at Black Bear Lake. Eventually, however, the outside world intruded. Woodswoman II is the equally engrossing story of the author's decision to build a tiny cabin retreat fashioned after Thoreau's Walden, of her life with two German shepherds as companions, and of her renewed bond with nature. Originally published under the title Beyond Black Bear Lake. Over 200,000 copies of the Woodswoman series have been sold.
