Walking Home: A Traveler in the Alaskan Wilderness, a Journey into the Human Heart

Publisher's Summary

Lynn Schooler had recently lost a dear friend and was feeling his marriage slipping away from him when he set out on a daring journey - first by boat, then on foot - into the Alaskan wilderness to clear his head. His solo expedition, recounted in Walking Home, is filled with the awe and danger of being on one's own in the wild, being battered by the elements and even, for two harrowing days, becoming the terrified quarry of a grizzly bear.

But the formidable, lonely landscape is also rich with human stories - of trappers, explorers, marooned sailors, and hermits, as well as the myths of the region's Tlingit Indians. Relating his journey, Schooler creates a conversation between the human and the natural, the past and the present, to investigate - on a remote and uninhabited shore - what it means to be not only part of nature's wild web, but also a member of a human community in the flow of history.

    "Boring narrator, and not to exciting story"

    More history than story and pretty boring. The narrator makes it worse with his monotone.
