Craig Medred: A wild life

Jean said no way; she wasn’t going to Stanley. She was the one who offered Alaska as an option.

“I’d always wanted to go to Alaska,” she said. “I don’t know why. I don’t really remember why.”

Dan didn’t care why. Alaska sounded great to him. If it wasn’t Stanley, he said, it was either Alaska or Australia, and Australia has lots of little creepy, crawly things. Dan preferred Alaska where the dangers are more obvious, like the grizzly bear that ripped its way through the bottom of his storage shed and was throwing out bags of dog food when Dan confronted it before running it off.

It was the big wild life in the big wild, and Dan loved it.
