County of Origin

210 miles of wild freshwater coastline, home to muskox, caribou, and wolverine, stretch to the nearest road heat at Yellowknife. Here’s the story of why Dave Olesen and his wife, Kristen, came to choose this life, how they built a homestead and found ways to make a living, and what that choice has meant to the people they have become.

Whether dog sledding across Great Slave Lake at 60 below, musing philosophically on the values of northern life, visiting the nearest neighbors 10 miles away, or piloting a bush plane over millions of acres that rarely feel a human footstep, Dave shares both ordinary and life-changing moments with humor and insight.

“This is home. It is easy enough to locate on paper, or in one’s imagination, but on the inconvenient sprawling earth it is difficult to reach.”  author Dave Olesen
