Mr B's 2015 Christmas Catalogue Review

In the mid-1970s Pulitzer prize winning travel writer John McPhee embarked on a series of adventures in the Alaskan wilderness to explore its incredible landscape and wildlife and to meet the endlessly resourceful and enduring settlers that call it home. This handsome reissue of McPhee’s resulting travelogue (now with a Robert Macfarlane forward) recalls his journeys by various means - most memorably by canoe on the salmon and bear-ridden Brooks River and by dog-pulled sled - and shows off his powers as an engaging storyteller to the full.
