PASSAGE TO JUNEAU A Sea and Its Meanings

by | Read by Jonathan Raban

Contemporary Culture • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1999

Author Jonathan Rabin describes his passage by sailboat from Puget Sound to Alaska, following the same route taken by Captain George Vancouver aboard the DISCOVERY in 1792. Vancouver's job was to map the coastline and look for a water route deep into the wilds of the Pacific Northwest. On this modern voyage, Rabin seeks to map the jagged edges of his psyche and find a way to resolve his failing marriage. On the whole, Captain Vancouver's voyage is the more interesting. Rabin reads in a weary voice and seems wholly taken up with the pain and loneliness of his emotional seascape. The listener comes away with a desire to see this same rugged coastline bathed in more literal and figurative sunshine. L.R.S. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 01]
