Wilderness, A Journal of Quiet Adventure in Alaska
Doug Capra (Introduction), Rockwell Kent
Wesleyan University Press
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.
