Water Mask by Monica Devine
Regular price $ 16.95
We all hold up a mirror to ourselves to make sense of the past, examine our present and develop dreams for the future. In Water Mask, Monica Devine maps out a life in Alaska that explores issues of the human heart: fear, spiritual longing, memory, perception, loss and wonder. She skis woodland trails with her baby on her back, navigates sea ice with Beaufort Sea whalers, and flies close to the ground in rogue weather with a rookie bush pilot. She negotiates the death of her father and the near loss of her cabin on the shape-shifting Copper River. In these captivating stories, Monica reflects on family, the importance of place, her work in Alaska Native villages, and more....all told against the background of a cold northern landscape that both rejects and beguiles.
