Barrow, 'is the record of two ordinary people in a rather out-of-the-ordinary situation.' Ittells the story of the year Henry and Susan Barrow spent in a cabin cruise r anchored off the coast of Alaska. Ever since they had read The Sea AroundUs, which left their curiosity 'more avid than assuaged,' the Barrows had been looking for a place where they could observe sea creatures 'to our hearts' content, on a very personal basis.' They found the spot - a tide pool,which formed a perfect natural laboratory on a grand scale, where they cou ld both observe and attain their ideal of living off the land with only theoccasional aid of the wilderness trading post at Wrangell, a good day's jo urney away. The Barrows' Alaskan year was mainly one of observation of the cycle of life at the tide pool - collecting specimens, hunting and fishing for food, and living as harmoniously as possible with their animal neighbors - which included otters, whose chief amusement was playing shoot-the-chute; a mink who developed the habit of stealing live scientific specimens forhis dinner; and a herd of seals who would not hold still to have their pic ture taken. Not that it was a completely peaceful year. There was the time their mooring gave way in the middle of one of Alaska's most terrifying storms, and the week the Barrows, with the aid of a handbook, dismantled theirboat engine to make a crucial repair. has enough of the unexpected to sati sfy the most exacting armchair adventurer.". - from the dj.
