Irene Skyriver - Paddling with Spirits: A Solo Kayak Journey - Village Books, Bellingham, WA

Signing/Readings, Kayaking

Inspired partly by her own spirit of adventure, and partly by the stories of her native coastal ancestors (Tlingit/Makah), Irene Skyriver celebrated her fortieth year of life with a solo kayak voyage, paddling from Alaska to her home in Washington’s San Juan Islands. "Paddling with Spirits: A Solo Kayak Journey" interweaves the true account of her journey with generational stories handed down and vividly re-imagined.
