Summary note:
  • "Rockwell Kent is one of America's most famous graphic artists. Also an avid traveler, Kent was especially fascinated by remote Arctic lands and stayed for extended periods of time to paint, write, and interact with the local inhabitants. Between 1918 and 1935, he wrote and illustrated several popular books about his travels including Voyaging. Originally published in 1924, it tells the engaging story of Kent's sailing voyage to Tierra del Fuego.
  • Kent is a charming writer and keen observer of both the land and its people. The book is beautifully and generously illustrated with Kent's distinctive woodcuts."--BOOK JACKET.
