Marty Ohlhaut loved the great outdoors, and he loved his family, but this time, the combination proved disastrous.

Long hours at work had kept Marty cooped up inside and away from home, so he was excited about taking off with his wife and five children for the Canadian Rockies. Now that his kids were getting older, he knew this might be their last camping trip together, and he wanted it to be extra memorable.

And memorable it would be. As soon as they arrived, everything started going wrong. From a massive heat wave and contaminated water to close encounters with red ants and bears, they experienced one problem after another. Then tragedy struck. Suddenly, Marty had to face the possibility of losing someone he loved. With the help of mysterious strangers in one of the world’s most beautiful, vast locations, he fought to keep his family alive and his sanity intact.

Thirty years later, he shares the riveting story of that ill-fated vacation in collaboration with his daughter Grace Ly. Through candor and wit reminiscent of Bill Bryson, Tent for Seven captures both the grandeur and the dangers of the wilderness as Marty learned just how much his wife and children meant to him—and how fragile life could be.

 

Marty Ohlhaut worked for thirty-two years as a risk management partner with IBM and then spent the next twelve years teaching strategic execution courses around the world. He has traveled to forty-four countries and visited all fifty states, making him an encyclopedia of amazing stories and anecdotes. He lives in Charlotte, North Carolina, with his wife, Joeline.

 

Grace Ly (Marty Ohlhaut’s daughter) worked for the White House and as an undercover officer for the Central Intelligence Agency. While living abroad in South Korea and Germany, she traveled the world extensively, visiting more than thirty countries. Grace has written numerous articles and feature stories for the US military, the American Red Cross, the White House, and the CIA. She lives in Charlotte, North Carolina, with her British husband, young son, and Friesian horse.
