Author Expresses Love for Brooks Range

Anchorage Author Bill Sherwonit fell in love with the Brooks Range when he first visited the area as a geologist in the early 1970’s. He explores the place and his appreciation for it in his new book, “Changing Paths: Travels and Mediations in Alaska’s Arctic Wilderness.” He begins the book with a 50 mile solo trek through the Brooks Range when he turned 50. Sherwonit says he had never spent two weeks alone, so it was a way to challenge himself and get to know the landscape better.
