Birthplace of the Winds : At the heart of the Aleutian archipelago, five long days into the heart of the frigid Bering Sea, lie the Islands of the Four Mountains. Mythical home of the Aleut people, this isolated, storm-tossed world is a realm of snowcapped volcanoes trailing plumes of steam, whipped by gale-force winds, or wrapped in thick fog. Here is where the kayak was born - and it is in kayaks that Jon Bowermaster and his three companions return. A tale of life-or-death adventure and authentic exploration, Birthplace of the Winds pits four men and two boats against some of the world's most forbidding weather; the result is a unique chronicle of nature at her most powerful and beautiful and of our own ancient instinct to challenge our world - and ourselves.
