DescriptionIn One Water the author takes us on a journey through the Alaskan wilderness to the streets of its second largest city in a quest to find meaning in this world. The book is not merely a narrative of his adventures but also describes many of the geological, biological, and climactic circumstances that have shaped this great land. Another strand woven through this collection is the coming of age story of a freewheeling young drifter slowly accepting his transformation to adulthood (or close to it, anyway) and his role as a member of a family.

About the Author
"Robert McCue's One Water showcases the generosity of the Alaskan spirit. In a voice laced with authenticity and humility, McCue writes about his life in Fairbanks, and his adventures in wild places beyond town. An intimate story, as tender as it is gritty, McCue explores the interconnectedness of the northern landscape and its creatures--wild and human. From hunting to commercial fishing, taxicab driving, glacier travel, and the meaning of fatherhood, McCue shares his hard-earned trials in claiming his Alaskan "home." One Water offers a riveting and rare glimpse into one man's reflections, as expansive as the northern landscape and people he reveres."--Debbie Moderow
"Rob's phrases are like driving a cab through ice fog at 40 below -- dreamy, dangerous, with the scent of stomach acid, frozen car exhaust and perfume. He's a thoughtful observer of a strange, distant place that's also familiar, like you've lived there most of your life. Raw, intelligent and pleasantly haunting."--Ned Rozell
