"As a paddler and a traveler, Audrey Sutherland is someone to value, and this book about her Alaskan voyages is a marvelous addition to the literature of coastal kayaking. What I admire most is her independence, her solitary travel, her patience and her unflappable attitude in the most challenging paddling conditions." -- Paul Theroux, author of The Tao of Travel
"Audrey's story is the stuff legends are made from. For the 30 years that I've known her she has been an inspiration to both women and men -- often shaming us into action with her exhortation to go solo and keep it simple, an approach that flies in eh face of consumer-style kayaking." -- John Down, author of Sea Kayaking
"Audrey Sutherland . . . had me on the second paragraph when she expressed her philosophy that has carried her through more than 8,000 miles of paddling: 'Go simple, go solo, go now.' The genre of adventure narratives has been enriched by her voice of inspiration." -- Jonathan Waterman, author of Running Dry --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

If you enjoy beautiful descriptions of the outdoors and reading about what it's like to kayak alone in Akaska, you will love this book. If you like memoirs and reading about how other people live intersting and creative lives, you will love this book. Be sure not to miss the photo of Audrey and her kayak at the very end of the book. I almost did and that would have been a shame. Seeing just how small and compact her total gear for three months of adventuring was makes the whole story even more special.
