In a tale remarkable for its quiet confidence and acute natural observation, the author Audrey Sutherland begins with her decision, at age 60, to undertake a solo, summer-long voyage along the southeast coast of Alaska in an inflatable kayak. Paddling North is a compilation of Sutherland’s first two (of over 20) such annual trips and her day-by-day travels through the Inside Passage from Ketchikan to Skagway. With illustrations by Yoshiko Yamamoto and the author’s recipes. Paper Back. Published by Patagonia, Inc.
