Lynn Schooler had recently lost a dear friend and was feeling his marriage slipping away from him when he set out on a daring journey—first by boat, then on foot—into the Alaskan wilderness to clear his head. His solo expedition, recounted in Walking Home, is filled with the awe and danger of being on one's own in the wild, being battered by the elements and even, for two harrowing days, becoming the terrified quarry of a grizzly bear.

But the formidable, lonely landscape is also rich with human stories—of trappers, explorers, marooned sailors, and hermits, as well as the myths of the region's Tlingit Indians. Relating his journey, Schooler creates a conversation between the human and the natural, the past and the present, to investigate—on a remote and uninhabited shore—what it means to be not only part of nature's wild web, but also a member of a human community in the flow of history.

REVIEWS

Praise for Walking Home

“A rich account of a man’s solo adventure into the wilderness, and what he learned about that place and himself.”—Kirkus

“Schooler reclaims the state’s true wilderness aesthetic in his chronicle of a solo trip along the southeast coastal region. He infuses his personal story with astute observations about the area’s history . . . Schooler shares his hiking experiences in a style reminiscent of Richard Nelson and Barry Lopez. It is in the artful blend of the intimate and the historical that Schooler’s prose truly sings, and his resistance to hyperbole should appeal to fans of natural history. Schooler is the real deal and he proves it on every gorgeous page.”—Booklist
