Product Description & Reviews

A Life-Changing Journey. Whirlpools, fast flowing currents, drifting logs, storms, and engine breakdowns – these are only a few of the challenges facing a father and his teenage son in their Rite of Passage voyage from Seattle, Washington to Glacier Bay, Alaska, in an open 19.5-foot motorboat. Following the Inland Passage to Alaska, their route exposed them to the open Pacific Ocean and they encountered 40-knot winds as they exited Glacier Bay. 2,400 miles in 24 days: The journey comes alive in Steven Windell's journal and photos that record more than adventure and spectacular scenery. Included are his photos of the stunning John Muir Glacier that today no longer exists due to global warming. They encountered many warm and friendly people along the British Columbia and Alaska coastline, and enjoyed the conviviality of many commercial fishermen who marveled at their boldness. This is the personal story of a father who begins by giving his son the gift of a high-school graduation trip, and ends in the realization that the arduous boat trip challenged his own notions of fatherhood and much more.
