About this title


The author describes her journey through America's last great remaining wilderness, combining natural history with personal reflection

From Library Journal:

At a turning point in her life, Zwinger wanted to see a piece of the last remaining wilderness in the United States. Leaving from Seattle with three months of supplies in a small truck, she covered thousands of miles exploring the back-country roads and hamlets of Alaska. The highlights of her trip occur during random conversations with locals, an odd assortment of rebels, misfits, and loners who share a distrust/dislike of tourists, legislators, and environmentalists whom they perceive as a threat to their freedom and ways of life. Zwinger seems more comfortable conveying scientific facts than her gut reactions to the splendor of the region, and ironically often resorts to rambling tirades against big oil companies for destroying the Earth while she continues to drive her truck. Overall, however, this is an interesting account of the region. Recommended for environmental/regional collections rather than those of general travel works.
