The Start of Summer Reading
Kiidk'yaas, was cut down in 1997 as a political statement by a man of questionable sanity? For me, it's even harder to believe because I had never heard about the tree or its death, even though it stood little over a hundred miles away (which is nothing in terms of Alaska/Canada distances). After reading this book, I want to visit Haida Gwaii more than ever, as well as all the other exciting and wondrous places of the Northwest Coast that I've still never been to.
As for the rest of my summer reading, I'm planning on finishing a few more books I started months ago, including two from my Eastern European History class last fall. Then I'll be moving on to unknown shores, and I'll be trying to read as much as I can.
