I always get asked how I do the sorts of things I do. I say you can too. There are all sorts of excuses for not doing the tough things, but you just have to put on your boots and do it.
Legendary Explorer & Friends
A formidable voice calling for the preservation of the Arctic and the Earth, Will Steger is best known for his legendary polar explorations. He has traveled tens of thousands of miles by kayak and dogsled for over 50 years, leading teams on some of the most significant polar expeditions in history, including the first confirmed unsupported journey to the North Pole and the longest unsupported dogsled expedition. Will Steger has joined the likes of Amelia Earhart and Jacques Costeau in earning the National Geographic John Oliver La Gorce Medal.
In The Steger Homestead Kitchen: Simple Recipes for an Abundant Life, Will collaborates with his niece Rita Mae Steger, chef at the Steger Wilderness Center, and accomplished food journalist and cookbook author Beth Dooley, in a personal and heartfelt collection of family recipes and stories. Interwoven with dozens of mouth-watering recipes—for simple, hearty meals shared around home chefs’ own homestead tables—are Steger’s exhilarating stories of epic adventures exploring the Earth’s most remote regions.
Prominently featured in the book are Rita Mae’s favorite meals—from generous breakfasts like griddlecakes, to warming lunches such as wild mushroom and wild rice soup, to tried-and-true snacks like Steger Wilderness Bars. Between both the recipes and the stories, the authors open their hearts and hearths, providing the practical advice and inspiration to cook up a good life in harmony with nature.
