In November of 2000, after the presidential election but before the results were handed down by the Supreme Court, John Daniel climbed into his pickup, drove to a cabin in the Rogue River Gorge, and quit civilization for a proscribed time. The strictures set up were severe: no two-way human communications, no radio, no music, no news, no clocks, and no calendars. He left his wife behind and moved into a cabin sure to be snowed-in just after his arrival, where he lived in complete isolation until spring, without even his cat as a companion. He was intent on not hearing a human voice other than his own for the next five months. Thoreau's Journals were there for instruction and inspiration. In addition to the physical rigor of working in isolation, Daniel had assumed a hard spiritual task in deciding to live alone: to confront his dead father. The result, Rogue River Journal, is a remarkable memoir of both vivid present and past interwoven.
From the Publisher:
The author chronicles his personal journey into simplicity, living in a cabin in the Rogue River Gorge without communication with the outside world for five months while enduring isolation and sometimes intense physical labor.


Kirkus Reviews
"A candid but polished sojourn into solitude and memory....Daniel's time alone is potent, a dilation on the amusements and scorchings of the simple life, and a distillation of the strange, human group that was his family." 02/15/2005
