This review is from: Passage to Juneau: A Sea and Its Meanings (Paperback)
I am a big fan of Raban and this book does not disappoint. Raban maintains the extremely high standards of narrative that we have come to expect.
This is an enthralling account of a trip from Seattle to Alaska up the 'inside passage'. Raban carefully leads us up the coast and entertains with stories on the history of the area, the indigenous peoples and the experiences of the European 'explorers'.
On a personal note this trip is bitter-sweet for Raban and the ending lingers with you long after you have finished reading.
