Ice Bears & Kotick: Rowing On Top Of The World Reviews

    This may be a 5 star book under the right circumstances. The location names, and the remote region separated the story from any kind of relevant reality. Normal Arctic exploits for Americans range from Alaska or Greenland or down to Antarctica.I read this exploit mainly for information on the boat type itself, and there was just enough actual hands on experience to tell me that the boat could be rowed by 2 people at about the average speed for a small rowed open water vessel, AND it could be sailed effectively. The boat did not point well. There were problems with ice and shallow rocks, but by and large there were no tales of being swamped or rolled by wind and waves.The experience of 2 young men on an expedition early in life, challenging the wilderness was well told, but I've read so many of these types of expeditions that it hit me as a typical tale and not outstanding in any particular singular event. The wildlife sightings were noted, and some geophysical explanations were given that added a dimension to the book.This is not a reader book for the average person, but one for someone looking for particular details and with specific interests.
