Braving It by James Campbell

As the world continues to shrink and technology takes over almost every part of our lives, it is good to know there are parts of the world that remain unchanged.  In this book, the author tells of his adventures in the untamed wilderness of Alaska.  That itself would be an adventure more than anyone could imagine but he also brings along his teenage daughter.  While this is a coming to know yourself and your child story it also brings in other aspects of life through the eyes of a young female teenager.  Many of the things us assume or take for granted we can now see through a teenager’s eyes, a different and younger view of life.  An adventure like this you would think would be a once in a life time experience but father and daughter take a total of three trips in the remote parts of Alaska.  As the adventures continue to unfold you get to see the changes in both the father and daughter through each trip.  With little to no technological distractions the ability to talk and depend on each other is critical for one’s survival.  It is unfortunate not all teenagers are given the chance to see the world unspoiled by human’s and how nature truly is meant to be like.    

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
