A little time at the beach, and I’m wondering if there are Alaskan equivalents of the beach read. Or does Alaska not lend itself to that type of reading?

    My favorite beach read is “Where the Sea Breaks Its Back” by Corey Ford, about the expedition of Georg Steller, the naturalist who served in Vitus Bering’s 1741-1742 Alaska expedition. This is a COLD beach read, with tales of scurvy, shipwreck, and the first science conducted by a European on Alaska’s shores (at Kayak Island, to be exact). I enjoyed reading it years ago while staying on a remote stretch of beach on a wave-lashed island in Prince William Sound.

    Glad you’re enjoying some Hawaii heat, Deb! Plenty of snow waiting here for your return…
