This book is a quintessential wilderness classic coming from the author's quarter century of living in the heart of the Tongass National Forest, our planet's biggest temperate rainforest.
This gargantuan rainforest is unique in that it is composed primarily of islands, the thousand-and-one islands of the Alexander Archipelago. Who then is better qualified to explore and appreciate the forest's stunning fjords and channels that a sailor? The author spent his entire youth sailing in this region and as a jack-tar on the schooner Vigilant engaged in the North Pacific China trade.
The scope of this work is largely limited to that part of the archipelago's geography that remains untrammeled by human intrusion. The author focuses his lens on the experiences of the singular individuals who reside in the pristine beauty of the most magnificent temperate rainforest on earth. These stories feature the spectacular geography of the islands and the author's own twenty-five years of intriguing, dangerous, fascinating living.
