Changing Paths is an autobiographical exploration of author Bill Sherwonit's relationship to the Alaska wilderness. Written in three parts, it first describes Sherwonit's introduction to the Brooks Range and his years as an exploration geologist. Part two takes the author deeper into the past, to explore his childhood roots in rural Connecticut and his recognition of wild nature as refuge, while part three follows the author as he becomes a nature writer and wilderness advocate. This book makes an extraordinary contribution to the literature of place from one of Alaska's most accomplished writers.
Bill Sherwonit is a widely published journalist and nature writer and has written ten previous books on Alaska.
"When he articulates the feelings evoked by traveling alone across Alaska's northern tundra, Sherwonit is clearly in his element. His prose is beautiful, lively, and informative."
