Bears breaking into your cabin. Washing your hair in a cold creek. No TV or computers. And using an outhouse at -40F. Nobody said life in the Alaska wilderness is easy but that's how Shannon Cartwright has become one of Alaska's most popular artists-- her simple rural lifestyle gives her time to discover what makes Alaska special.
Finding Alaska brings her personal story to light and contains a selection of artwork from each of her 23 books published to date. There also is a selection of her earliest unpublished artwork. And, for the first time, she shares her story of moving to Alaska as a young woman in search of her future and what she discovered along the way. Whether you have been actively collecting her work or just discovering her for the first time, Finding Alaska is sure to inspire you to visit Alaska.
