Oh my goodness you guys!!! This book….awesome. I’m sure I could have chosen a better adjective to describe Braving It by James Campbell but that was the one that kept sticking into my head.
When I first picked this book I thought it would just be a memoir of a guy’s journey in the wilderness… and brought his daughter along with. No this book was so much more than that. It was a dad, helping his daughter become a person of character and giving her experience few of us will ever have.
Campell didn’t shy away from the hardships or struggles they faced. He recognized his own limitations yet did his best to persevere. He was even transparent when it came to his parenting struggles.
This book was such a gift. As someone who longs to go to Alaska ( I have begged my husband just to ditch everything and live off the land there) I loved the honesty of this book. What an amazing gift Campbell was able to give his daughter. This is a good read for anyone who loves the outdoors and is a parent.
