Such an unusual book. It follows Erin, a 19 year old British girl, who travels to Alaska to question why many ‘explorers‘ are men and whether a journey would be different if taken by a woman. It references Thoreau, McCandless, Kerouac and the Unabomber (a lot).
It‘s fiction masquerading as NF, which confused my poor little brain. I enjoyed most of it, and it definitely challenged me, but found the philosophising and NF bits rather extraneous.
