520 2  "The powerful and affirming story of a father's journey 
       with his teenage daughter to the far reaches of Alaska. 
       Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, home to only a 
       handful of people, is a harsh and lonely place. So when 
       James Campbell's cousin Heimo Korth asked him to spend a 
       summer building a cabin in the rugged Interior, Campbell 
       hesitated about inviting his fifteen-year-old daughter, 
       Aidan, to join him: Would she be able to withstand clouds 
       of mosquitoes, the threat of grizzlies, bathing in an ice-
       cold river, and hours of grueling labor, peeling and 
       hauling logs? But once there, Aidan embraced the wild. She
       even agreed to return a few months later to help the 
       Korths work their traplines and hunt for caribou and 
       moose. Despite windchills of 50 degrees below zero, father
       and daughter ventured out daily to track, hunt, and trap. 
       Under the supervision of Edna, Heimo's Yupik Eskimo wife, 
       Aidan grew more confident in the woods. Campbell knew that
       in traditional Eskimo cultures, some daughters earned a 
       rite of passage usually reserved for young men. So he 
       decided to take Aidan back to Alaska one final time before
       she left home. It would be their third and most ambitious 
       trip, backpacking over Alaska's Brooks Range to the 
       headwaters of the mighty Hulahula River, where they would 
       assemble a folding canoe and paddle to the Arctic Ocean. 
       The journey would test them, and their relationship, in 
       one of the planet's most remote places: a land of wolves, 
       musk oxen, Dall sheep, golden eagles, and polar bears. At 
       turns poignant and humorous, Braving It is an ode to 
       America's disappearing wilderness and a profound 
       meditation on what it means for a child to grow up--and a 
       parent to finally, fully let go"--|cProvided by publisher.
