Kayaking Alaska's Inside Passage with Susan Marie Conrad
Put any human in a tiny vessel and send them up a 1,200-mile stretch of the Inside Passage of British Columbia and SE Alaska—and they are bound to have stories! Susan Marie Conrad's stories are not just filled with intrigue and adventure, but they have heart, inspiration, acceptance and gratitude. Come along for the ride and share an evening of adventure with Susan, who, in 2010, completed a solo 1,200-mile sea kayak expedition up the Inside Passage and is planning another trip, this time to Sitka, next summer. Relive the journey with Susan as she shares experiences of paddling marathon distances for days on end, struggling to keep an open mind and interacting with the sea on its terms, forging friendships with amazing people in remote locations, pretending not to be intimidated by 700 pound grizzly bears and 40 ton whales, and living her dream.
Copies of the book will be available for sale by Browseabout Books and Ms. Conrad will sign copies afterwards.
