Paddling My Own Canoe
Honolulu, University Press of Hawaii, (1978). An exploration of the northeast coast of Moloka'i, by way of solo trips made in an inflatable canoe. Warmly inscribed by the author. This was her first book; her second also covered Hawaii; her third and final book, Paddling North, was published by Patagonia Books in 2012 and describes her solo paddling trips to islands in southeast Alaska. Sutherland is considered a pioneer of solo adventure traveling by women; she died in 2015, and in 2020 the New York Times included her in their series "Overlooked No More" -- obituaries of significant people who had been overlooked by the Times at their death. Fine in a very near fine dust jacket, and scarce signed. [#035315] SOLD
