In the shadow of the Great Alaska Range lives Margaret Stern- Horse specialist, botanist and all-around expert in wilderness survival. She joined Morgan Beasley here to help care for horses but soon found the wild setting was a perfect fit for her skill set. Together with Morgan, Margaret has grown their small homestead by leaps and bounds and co-created a life in the bush that’s now stronger than ever. But if they’re going to reach total independence from civilization, there is still much to do. And in a place where temperatures plummet to fifty below zero and hungry grizzlies patrol the hills for half the year, survival must always come first.
