A wonderful illustrated children’s book that follows a family’s expeditions through the wilderness of Alaska–from a child’s point of view. Each new challenge is more fun if you imagine yourself as a well-adapted Alaskan animal: a moose in the swamp; a beluga whale in the ocean, a mammoth in a snowstorm, and more!
Erin McKittrick and her husband Brentwood (Hig) Higman are long time friends of Alpacka Raft and have an incredible history of huge journeys across the Alaskan wilderness, which are documented through their website GroundTruthTrekking.org. The illustrator Valisa Higman is Erin’s sister in law. Valisa, Erin and Hig, and their families live in the small fishing village of Seldovia, Alaska.
