The story of the author's near-fatal voyage in Arctic waters.
In the summer of 1984, Anthony Dalton embarked on a near-fatal voyge in a small boat along the wild northwest coast of Alaska. Dalton's gripping description of his encounter with wild storms north of the Arctic Circle explores the irresistible lure of risk and challenge that draws adventurers to the Arctic.
Treading water, my full boots threatening to drag me under, I spun in a circle, my arms outstretched for balance, praying the boat was behind me, praying she was close enough to reach. There was only the threatening sea and lowering skies.
