Braving It is the story of these three journeys to Alaska, and how they change a father, his teenage daughter, and their relationship. In addition to being a profoundly personal and philosophical exploration of life’s fundamental questions, the book also addresses universal themes such as: the importance of nature as a basic human need in an increasingly disconnected and artificial world, the meaning of home, the father-daughter bond, the search for ways to live more fully, how we, as parents, can guide our adolescents with a light but steady hand, and the pain—and joy—of letting go.
