Recent praise for Cabin Fever: "This quietly marvelous book is really a mystery novel at heart. The mystery is, How to live? Tom Montgomery Fate . . . sets out to answer this question, meandering, with Thoreau as his companion, toward the truth - or more accurately, the truths." -- David Gessner, author of Soaring with Fidel
