Beyond Road's End

Living our dream didn’t require outrageous abilities. Besides, this story’s far bigger than us. It’s about an entire community, and what working together can achieve.—from the Introduction

Beyond Road’s End offers a welcome escape from crowded cubicles and the fumes of freeway gridlock as readers tag along with Janice and Ed on their journey to build a new life on their own terms in rural Alaska.

The adventurous couple came to Alaska from New Hampshire with dreams of living richly in the wilderness on ten dollars a day. Ed brought his experience as a builder, and Janice brought her New England work ethic. Together they fell in love with the heartbreakingly beautiful landscape of the Far North.

Part love story, part adventure, and part natural history, Beyond Road’s End is a touching memoir of carving out a life in Alaska during the state’s coming-of-age decade between the completion of the oil pipeline and the devastating Exxon Valdez oil spill.

The Wonders of Nettles

Weed or super food? Stinging nettles are found on all continents (except Antarctica). These wild plants are despised by many, revered by the wise. Nettles contain every nutrient from A to Zinc.

Learn how to:

  • Identify nettles, and gather them safely
  • Use nettles in the kitchen for delicious, nutritious creations
  • Use nettles to boost your immune system and enhance health and beauty
  • Use nettles for feeding dogs, cats, birds, and livestock
  • Use nettles for garden health, native butterfly survival, and much more

The Wonders of Nettles is the product of forty years of using nettles and sharing them with others. Nesto (Nettle pesto) and nettle tea are two of Janice’s foundational health practices. Join Janice in enhancing your health with herbs and nutritious wild food.
