Críticas:

'This is the best wilderness narrative I've read for a long time. The tension between nature at its most exquisite and most lethal makes this the story of our times. A remarkable book' (Nicholas Crane, TV presenter and author of Coast)

'Walking Home is an invitation to get lost in a book. It travels a line around the Alaskan landscape, but creates a much more meandering and delightful dance through history, culture, autobiography and natural history in its recounting of this odyssey. I'm glad I got to wander in it' (Rebecca Solnit, author of Wanderlust)

Praise for The Blue Bear:
'The Blue Bear is sublime. [Schooler] threads us into the intimacy of Alaska's nature... Leads...us where we have never been before'

(New York Times Book Review)

'Thrilling treatments of travel have become commonplace, but first-rate portraits of friendship are hard to find' (Washington Post)

Reseña del editor:

In the spring of 2007, hard on the heels of the worst winter in the history of Juneau, Alaska, Lynn Schooler finds himself facing the far side of middle age and exhausted by labouring to handcraft a home as his marriage slips away. Seeking solace and escape in nature, he sets out on a solo journey into the Alaskan wilderness, travelling first by small boat across the formidable Gulf of Alaska, then on foot along one of the wildest coastlines in North America.

Walking Home is filled with stunning observations of the natural world, and rife with nail-biting adventure as Schooler fords swollen rivers and eludes aggressive grizzlies. But more important, it is a story about finding wholeness-and a sense of humanity-in the wild. His is a solitary journey, but Schooler is never alone; human stories people the landscape-tales of trappers, explorers, marooned sailors, and hermits, as well as the mythology of the region's Tlingit Indians. Alone in the middle of several thousand square miles of wilderness, Schooler conjures the souls of travellers past to learn how the trials of life may be better borne with the help and community of others.

In Walking Home Schooler creates a conversation between the human and the natural, the past and present, and investigates, with elegance and soul, what it means to be a part of the flow of human history.
