Summary
Erin is 19. She's never really left England, but she has watched Bear Grylls and wonders why it's always men who get to go on all the cool wilderness adventures. So Erin sets off on a journey into the Alaskan wilderness, a one-woman challenge to the archetype of the rugged male explorer. Erin's voyage takes her from her West Midlands home, through the frozen wilderness of the Arctic Circle by foot, husky sled and commercial fishing boats, on across the entire breadth of the American continent and finally to a lonely cabin in the wilds of Denali. On her journey, Erin explores subjects as diverse as the moon landings, The Order of The Dolphin, The Doomsday Clock, shamanism, Ted Kaczynski, the Gaia hypothesis, Henry David Thoreau, the appropriation of native land and culture, Darwin, nuclear war, and the pill - amongst many others
