About the Author:

Lynn Schooler is the critically acclaimed author of The Blue Bear and The Last Shot. He has lived in Alaska for almost forty years, working as a commercial fisherman, shipwright, wilderness guide, and an award-winning wildlife photographer.

Review:

'This is the best wilderness narrative I've read for a long time. The tension between nature at its most exquisite and most lethal makes this the story of our times. A remarkable book' * Nicholas Crane, TV presenter and author of Coast * 'Walking Home is an invitation to get lost in a book. It travels a line around the Alaskan landscape, but creates a much more meandering and delightful dance through history, culture, autobiography and natural history in its recounting of this odyssey. I'm glad I got to wander in it' * Rebecca Solnit, author of Wanderlust * Praise for The Blue Bear: 'The Blue Bear is sublime. [Schooler] threads us into the intimacy of Alaska's nature... Leads...us where we have never been before' * New York Times Book Review * 'Thrilling treatments of travel have become commonplace, but first-rate portraits of friendship are hard to find' * Washington Post *
