Great article in WB on Harry Pidgeon... Ah, but those really were the days, before we shrunk our world.

I loved his book. Read it twice.

I have a signed and annotated copy of his book with some newspaper clippings and a Christmas card with notes about preparations for his third voyage stuck inside the cover. Starting a new build at eighty years - A favorite.
What an understated fellow.
The book left unanswered questions like, where is his photography from the Sierras? And what about that Alaska journey? There is more to that story Iím sure. The article pointed to a lead on the photos that I'm going to follow up.
Sort of a Joshua Slocum, Robert Service and Ansel Adams all rolled into one.
