Only Kayak

by Kim Heacox, Only Kayak Books available in PDF, EPUB, Kindle, Docs and Mobi Format. Download Only Kayak books, In this coming-of-middle-age memoir, Kim Heacox, writing in the tradition of Abbey, McPhee, and Thoreau, discovers an Alaska reborn from beneath a massive glacier, where flowers emerge from boulders, moose swim fjords, and bears cross crevasses with Homeric resolve. In such a place Heacox finds that people are reborn too, and their lives begin anew with incredible journeys, epiphanies, and successes. All in an America free of crass commercialism and overdevelopment. Braided through the larger story are tales of gold prospectors and the cabin they built sixty years ago; John Muir and his intrepid terrier, Stickeen; and a dynamic geology professor who teaches earth science "as if every day were a geological epoch." Nearly two million people come to Alaska every summer, some on large cruise ships, some in single kayaks--all in search of the last great wilderness, the Africa of America. It is exactly the America Heacox finds in this story of paradox, love, and loss.

Kayak Adventure In Siberia

by Detlev Dr. Henschel, Kayak Adventure In Siberia Books available in PDF, EPUB, Kindle, Docs and Mobi Format. Download Kayak Adventure In Siberia books, After Dr. Detlev Henschel’s legendary 2,500-kilometre solo kayak expedition across the Baltic Sea from Flensburg (Germany) to the Arctic Circle, where he largely survived on ‘bush tucker’, this time the seasoned survival trainer, best-selling author and Doctor of Science set off on a thrilling adventure around the deepest lake in the world (a mile!) in Siberia (eastern Russia): Lake Baikal. It turned out to be an intrepid voyage full surprises and ‘Russian improvisation’: encounters with the Russian mafia, unique nature, a host of hungry bears, storms, forest fires stretching for hundreds of kilometres, people who looked as if they were straight out of Once Upon a Time in the West and a chance meeting with a kayaking couple from America. Despite the poor odds the Russians on the Baikal gave him of making it back in one piece, Detlev embarked on the 2,000-kilometre circumnavigation of the ‘Fountain of the Earth’, as Siberians call their sacred lake, solo in a kayak. On this for the most part solitary expedition ‘at water level’, he got closer to the soul of the lake and the people around it than anyone before him. (The books of the Arctic Circle expedition Going Solo on the Baltic Sea, Eat or Die! and Japan’s Hinterland - A diary are also being translated into English and will be published this year, along with Namibia off the Road about Detlev’s time as the owner of a safari business in Africa.)
