Tip of the Iceberg: My 3,000-Mile Journey Around Wild Alaska, the Last Great American Frontier based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
My husband and I loved this book. We have enjoyed three visits to Alaska, so it was fascinating to read Mark's account of his travels in the footsteps of John Muir. We had visited a few of the places that Mark went to, but many we had not. He is an engaging story teller and blends facts with human interest stories. It was a great blend of historical and current information.
"Tip of the Iceberg" is a book that readers settle into. The action of this book matures with subtle grace similar to the style of Jack London. There is no necessity for no cinematic or contemporary action that incessantly assaults the senses. Through "Tip of the Iceberg" readers are able to enjoy the full journey Mark Adams undergoes to follow Edward H. Harriman's 1988 Alaskan expedition. Thoroughly enjoyed the full descriptions Adams provided of his journey and all the historical background provided to readers.
