Audio Book Summary

The illustrator and author Rockwell Kent (1882-1971)wrote and illustrated this description of a trip to Alaska with his eldest son. Though an audiobook listener cannot, of course, see Kent's illustrations, the artist's eye is evident throughout the text.

Wilderness: A Journal of Quiet Adventure in Alaska — Memoir of the fall and winter of 1918/19 painting and exploring with his eldest son – also Rockwell – on Fox Island in Resurrection Bay, Alaska (1920). (Summary by Wikipedia and David Wales)

    "Quiet" being the operative word. Wales' subdued narration of Kent's journal entries is Walden's equal in terms expressing the physicalities required of (provisioned) self-sufficiency, without the philosophical musings. Even for a lover of frontier stories, this one rang dull to me.
