• Canyons and Ice: The Wilderness Travel of Dick Griffith

      Griffith, Dick; Johnson, Kaylene (University of Alaska Anchorage. Bookstore, 2013-12-02)
      Dick Griffith journeyed across Alaska, Canada, Mexico, and the American West. According to Jon Krakauer, "Griffith is simply afflicted with an irresistible inclination to attempt what others say can't be done. When asked what possesses a man to repeatedly strike out alone across hundreds of miles of rugged, lonely country, he replies, 'Every so often, it's just time to walk.'" Kaylene Johnson is author of five books about Alaska including her memoir A Tender Distance: Adventures Raising My Son in Alaska.
