Local author launches book Thursday

AUTHOR MILES OLSON will unveil his book about living off the grid in the woods this Thursday at Rewind Coffee in Courtenay.

Local author Miles Olson has spent the better part of the past decade living on the outskirts of the Comox Valley, off the grid, in the woods, learning and practising earth skills for his subsistence.

In his first book, Unlearn, Rewild: Earthskills, ideas and inspiration for the future primitive, just released by New Society Publishers, he shares some of the most endangered and unique skills he has amassed in his time living close to the land.

He also delves into a deep philosophical exploration into the relationship between humans and wildness.

This Thursday, he will host an evening book launch event to celebrate the book’s release. Come and hear what led to the writing of this book along with other revelations of a 21st century forager-scavenger-hunter.

You can also enter a free raffle to win prizes hand-harvested/crafted by the author himself, and grab a copy of the book. The event will be at Rewind Coffee bar (formerly Freakin Coffeeshop) at 2456 Rosewall Cres. in Courtenay at 7 p.m.
