Inspired Reader Abandons Civilization

Warning: Sacred Ground & Holy Water is now officially a dangerous book. Just ask Greg Schundler. After reading a chapter about the remote Haida Gwaii islands near the coast of Alaska, he decided to move there and live off the land.

It's partly my fault. Using potent wordcraft, I connived to manipulate readers into envisioning this paradise on earth as it really is. Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea culpa! So, I can no longer give an unqualified recommendation to my book but must instead issue the following caution:

People like Greg who are unusually susceptible to wild pristine beauty shouldn't read the chapter "Nearing the End of the World." Those who suffer from hernia should bypass the side-splitting "Moldy Socks & The Three Bears." Men hoping to avoid getting all weepy should skip "Booze, Blues & Bible-bangers." Finally, women who can't handle bad-boy trash-talk should omit "My Big Fat Bulgarian Orgy." Buy the book, but please read responsibly.

We'll try to provide updates on Greg's adventure. Being a Princeton University graduate, he has apparently thought of everything necessary for living in paradise - except the obvious. So, any hottie wishing to join him should submit a photo wearing only 3 leaves and a sworn notarized affidavit that you're not exceptionally tempted by fruit.


  1. Lyn, thanks for the heads up. I'm going right to the orgy and the booze since neither infer me, but can promise I won't be adding pics w/the 1-2-or 3 leaves, for all involved's health and sanity. LOL! -u r something else! I love this blog.
