In the 1970s, Pierre Berton and his family recreated the trip down the Yukon made by his father, Francis George Berton, in 1898. This compelling story of the later journey is a valentine from son to father, a magical tale of a family adrift, and a poetic exploration of the region’s rich history. In experiencing this great wilderness, Berton and his family discover their deep connection to nature — and each other. From Goodreads.
I enjoyed this book. It was an interesting story about a family trip down the Yukon river. It describes how it looked in the 1970s when this trip takes place but also about the thriving place it was in 1898 when Pierre Berton's father made the trip for the gold rush.
I am looking forward to see some of the places described in this book.
