"Joanna is a one-of-a-kind writer and human whose stories in this collection take us deep into her amazing and inspiring life in the wilderness. Her lyrical style is at once deeply moving and transformative because she is able to peel back the layers of her experience with such candor, insight, self-reflection and honesty. It's a powerful combination, one rife with poetry, that leaves her readers in awe and makes her one of my favourite Canadian writers." -Cori Howard, corihoward.com "This gorgeously-written collection of essays examines pivotal moments and fearsome life or death choices, in one remarkable life. Make that nine lives, at least, given the perilous escapes Joanna Streetly has made en route to wisdom earned during the first half of her adventurous life. WILD FIERCE LIFE could well be subtitled Swimming With Bears or Paddling Among Icebergs or Close Encounters With Wolves. A perfect, resonant haiku sets the subtext for each essay which then transports us onto the islands and into the waters of the wild north Pacific along with her. Brilliant nature writing, the best kind of travel writing, and so much more... I cannot recommend it highly enough." -Caroline Woodward, author of LIGHT YEARS: MEMOIR OF A MODERN LIGHTHOUSE KEEPER "WILD FIERCE LIFE is a portal into something sadly now rare: a human life lived in intimate relationship with the ocean and the wilderness. Joanna Streetly's prose, by turns fluent and taut, is always captivating. Reading these essays, I too lived on the edge of the world. I tasted salt and felt the rain on my skin, and shared in the making of a life or death choice. When I reached the last page, I wanted to begin again." -Kathy Page, author of PARADISE & ELSEWHERE and ALPHABET
