conscious Kachemak Bay Wilderness Lodge. Their story conveys the
beauty, joy, and dangers of Alaska and the people they came to know.

Michael McBride has lived at his award-winning Kachemak Bay Wilderness
Lodge. The lodge has won more awards, and has been the focus of more
magazine, newspaper, and film attention, than any other in Alaska
largely because of its environmental activism. The New York Times named
the lodge one of the "l,000 Places to See Before You Die," and the
Travel Channel dedicated an entire episode to it.
