Drifting Home : A Family's Voyage of Discovery Down the Wild Yukon River
In the 1970s, Pierre Berton and his family recreated the trip down the Yukon made by his father, Francis George Berton, in 1898. This compelling story of the later journey is a valentine from son to father, a magical tale of a family adrift, and a poetic exploration of the region's rich history. In experiencing this great wilderness, Berton and his family discover their deep connection to nature - and each other.

1 . Great Story!
Posted January 30, 2014 by Marjorie Chuppa , Valleyview, ABI recently came across the Reader's Digest condensed version, published in the late 1980's. I loved it so much that I am now buying it for my e-reader. It is the wondeful true story of Pierre Berton's trip with his family in 1972 down the Yukon River from Whitehorse to Dawson. He wanted to share with his family the wonder and beauty of the Yukon, as well as reminiscing about his childhood in Dawson (where he was born in 1920) and his fond memories of travelling on the river with his parents and sister. It is a terrific read from beginning to end.
