Passage to Juneau: A Sea and Its Meanings (Vintage Departures) by Jonathan Raban
Passage to Juneau: A Sea and Its Meanings (Vintage Departures)

Thane, January 5, 2010

The Pacific Coast of Canada and Alaska is a magical, mystical place. Raban captures it perfectly, entangling it with his own personal struggles, an extensive knowledge of literature about the sea and history of the area, and an exquisite sense of observation.

The book ends on a sad note, the trip not quite finished, leaving the reader wanting, much like every Passage to Juneau I've been fortunate enough to make.
