Reviews

"As with most trips, Rowing to Latitude rewards you when you finally get to where you're going. Fredston makes you see wilderness as a more precious commodity than you thought, and inspires you to stretch your limits physically and mentally." --Lynne McNeil, The San Diego Union-Tribune

"An honest and self-aware woman's record of her unusual life...a shrewd analytical look at human existence as a balance of danger and joy." --Judith Niemi, The Women's Review of Books

"Beguiling." --Gail Caldwell, The Boston Globe

"The book is far more than an adventure travel narrative. It also is deeply personal memoir and love story." --Brian Maffly, The Salt Lake Tribune

"[Fredston] sticks to telling good stories about battling, on primitive terms, the weather, the water, the land, the animals and some of the demons that haunt us all." --Craig Medred, Anchorage Daily New

"[Fredston] provides armchair travelers with a vivid portrait of wilderness rowing...full of intriguing personal digressions and moments of high drama." --John Freeman, The Wall Street Journal
