"An extraordinary adventure."
In 1996 a 9,500-year-old skeleton unearthed beside the Columbia River galvanized anthropologists with the possibility that prehistoric humans reached North America from northern Japan by crossing the ocean in small open boats. In "In the Wake of the Jomon," world-class kayaker and science writer Jon Turk relates his successful attempt to re-create this perilous migration, a voyage that "Paddler" magazine named one of the ten greatest sea kayak expeditions of all time.
Jon Turk is the author of Cold Oceans: Adventures in Kayak, Rowboat, and Dogsled. His two-year voyage around the North Pacific rim in the wake of Stone Age mariners has been named by Paddler magazine one of the ten greatest sea kayaking expeditions of all time.
