Chris Czajkowski came to Canada’s attention in the mid-1980s when she began writing to CBC Radio's Morningside about a particularly unusual adventure: in her late thirties, she headed into the pristine wilderness of British Columbia’s Tweedsmuir Provincial Park. There, she single-handedly cleared the land and — despite a total lack of experience in construction — built her own house.More than simply a lyrical celebration of the natural world, Cabin at Singing River is a story of courage, perseverance and imagination. From the moment Chris sets her inexperienced foot into an unsteady canoe until the triumphant day she stands back to survey the log house she has built, we are irresistibly drawn into her remarkable journey toward independence.
