Spirited Waters: Soloing South Through the Inside Passage
"Spirited Waters is about the deep connection Hahn made with the wildlife and elemental seascape around her. Spying on an otter family, she tells of their habits and haunts and shares a native Tlingit tale. She explains why "star-fish" is a misnomer, how to catch and eat a giant sea urchin, and what are the traditional uses of the kelp she chops into her chowder." "It is also about the human characters Hahn met along the way - lonely lighthouse keepers, salmon fishers, native elders, small-time loggers, and friendly gunk holers. Paddling among these coastal companions, Hahn discovered that openness and trust were her best co-pilots."--BOOK JACKET.
