Book Description:
​​
The Wilderness Spa brings people from three quite different sources together to survive catastrophe in the Alaskan wilderness. They amaze themselves in their ability to coalesce and work cohesively in the face of hunger, injury, insecurity, and possible death. With that on their minds, they explore statistics, logic, social justice, and challenges to philosophies and social norms.

After rocky starts when new members enter the group, they learn to find the best in their fellow travelers, how to help, follow, and lead when necessary. Nothing is ever easy. Without attacking each other, they dig deep to reconcile their differences.

Join the group as they make the best of what they have. Struggle along with them and reconcile your own philosophical belief systems with logic and science.

My Review
This is the second book I have read by this author. As I mentioned with the first book, Trials and Trails, Mr. Halverson is a prolific storyteller. Just like with the prior novel, I was drawn to this story and the characters.
The cast of characters are all from different walks of life but they learned to come together in order to survive. You never realize just how strong you can be until you are faced with a life or death situation. It takes a lot mental strength as well as physical. Where the story could have gone downhill is if the characters had been whiny or the story unrealistic. Luckily, that was not the case in either situation. 
I felt like I was there with the group as they dealt with every element that was thrown at them. Although, I think I will skip my booking for the "wilderness spa". Readers should pick up this book.
