Rockwell Kent, the acclaimed illustrator of Moby Dick and Shakespeare's Complete Works, was, among other things, an adventurer with a particular interest in remote destinations. This journal, featuring Kent's woodcuts, describes a trip to Alaska with his 9-year-old son in 1918. Over a course of 7 months, headquartered in a rustic island cabin near Seward, the father and son rekindle their bond.  (ALA106, $19.95)
