This book is a true tragedy. These people get stuck in Alaska without their guides after an earthquake. There are different sets of people that each have to face this tragedy and then have to learn to work as a team to try to get themselves out of a horrible situation. I enjoyed how the author helps us to understand how each person is handling being stranded by circumstances. I love that each person works together to try to get to safety but each person still has their own doubts and feelings. This is a very sad book. I learned to like each character as the story unfolds. I received a copy of this book from ireadbooktour for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.
I give this book a four out of five stars.

The Wilderness Spa brings people from three quite different sources together to survive catastrophe in the Alaskan wilderness. They amaze themselves in their ability to coalesce and work cohesively in the face of hunger, injury, insecurity, and possible death. With that on their minds, they explore statistics, logic, social justice, and challenges to philosophies and social norms.
After rocky starts when new members enter the group, they learn to find the best in their fellow travelers, how to help, follow, and lead when necessary. Nothing is ever easy. Without attacking each other, they dig deep to reconcile their differences.
Join the group as they make the best of what they have. Struggle along with them and reconcile your own philosophical belief systems with logic and science.
