Overview

Strap on your imaginary backpack and step onto the path of an Alaskan adventure that will take you over the tundra, past the glaciers, and into the heart and soul of a man discovering the strength and beauty of the land and of himself. Brod Bagert’s Alaska rewards its readers with an intimate and varied view of a spectacular subject by combining the immediacy of an amusing journal with the reflection of poems by turns moody, funny and deeply moving. It tells the story of a middle-aged man on the side of a mountain, the story of a sea kayak afloat in the mystery of eternal ice – the story of civilization washed away by the magic of an ice-cold skinnydip – and in a quiet way it tells the story of a love which like the magnetic pole reaches across a continent to show the way home.

Born and raised in the City of New Orleans, Brod stud- ied the classics in Latin and Greek, wrestled and boxed to vent adolescent angst, fell in love with and married his high- school sweetheart, practiced law, served in public of ce, and reared four children that are the joy of his life.
Today Brod mesmerizes audiences with poetry, both his and those of the great authors of history, leaving participants with a new or reinvigorated love for poetry in the process.
Brod continues to live in New Orleans with Debby, his wife of more than 40 years, where they spend quality time with their four children, and a growing tribe of grandchildren.
