Passage to Juneau ~ A Sea and It's Meanings by Jonathan Raban (author of Bad Land) 1999

ISBN 10: 0679442626 ISBN 13: 9780679442622
Publisher: Pantheon, 1999

With the same rigorous observation (natural and social), invigorating stylishness, and encyclopedic learning that he brought to his National Book Award-winning Bad Land, Jonathan Raban conducts readers along the Inside Passage from Seattle to Juneau. The physical distance is 1,000 miles of difficult-and often treacherous-water, which Raban navigates solo in a 35-foot sailboat.

But Passage to Juneau also traverses a gulf of centuries and cultures: the immeasurable divide between the Northwest's Indians and its first European explorers-- between its embattled fishermen and loggers and its pampered new class. Along the way, Raban offers captivating discourses on art, philosophy, and navigation and an unsparing narrative of personal loss.

Very good with jacket. Jacket shows a few minor tiny tears and edgewear, considered very good. The book is with only slightly bumped corners and clean interior. Overall excellent.
