tale of adventure illustrated with beautiful black and white and color photographs. The author takes us off the beaten path
to find the “real” Southeast Alaska -- in stories of calving glaciers, bears feeding along the shoreline, small coastal
fishing villages and vibrant Native communities.
Realtime stories of our trips to Queen Charlotte Islands (2009), West Coast of Vancouver
Island (2008, 2008, 2012), SE Alaska (2011) and Northern BC (2010, 2012). Includes essays on practical aspects of cruising.

Center. See the navigation bar at the left.
Where to find Elsie Hulsizer's books
Click on the book cover to
order Glaciers, Bears and Totems directly from Harbour Publishing in Madeira Park, British Columbia. Voyages
to Windward recently went out of print and is not available from Harbour. You can still find copies of it at many
local bookstores. The distributor Partners West has copies of the book and your bookstore can order from them.
If you are a Ballard resident, click here to order either book from the Secret Garden Bookstore.
I've included this link
to my local bookstore because they still have copies of Voyages to Windward and I want to support them.
But if you want to support your local bookstore, you may be able to also order from them. Many local bookstores have
websites connected to book distributors. Some of the proceeds from the sales go to the bookstore, just as if you'd bought
them from the store.
Of course you can always order my
books from that online retailer whose name begins with an"A", but why do that when you can support your local bookstore?
In the Seattle area, both of
my books are also available from marine bookstores and suppliers, including Captain's Nautical Supplies and Fisheries Supplies.
Call before going to any of them for a copy of Voyages to Windward.
