A Long Trek Home: 4,000 Miles by Boot, Raft, and Ski
By Erin McKittrick
In June 2007, Erin McKittrick and her husband, Hig, left Seattle for the Aleutian Islands, traveling solely by human power through some of the most rugged terrain in the world. This is the story of their unprecedented trek along the northwest coast and their encounters with pelting rains, ferocious winds, blizzards, and bears, as well as with the tiny communities that dot this wild region. An epic wilderness adventure, their journey is also one of learning and discovery. By taking each mile step by step, they intimately explore the coastal regions of Washington, British Columbia, and Alaska.
