McBride writes book about lodge

Kachemak Bay Wilderness Lodge owner and author Michael McBride has written and had published “The Last Wilderness: Alaska’s Rugged Coast,” a memoir about living and raising a family at his lodge in China Poot Bay. With his wife, Diana McBride, he has lived at the lodge for almost 50 years. The book tells his  story of pursuing a dream of living at a wilderness location and the many people he has met there.

“In today’s technophile world, McBride’s story is a refreshing testimony to how one man’s vision helped to preserve a piece of paradise,” Publishers Weekly said of his book.

Published by Fulcrum Books in September, “The Last Wilderness” is on sale at bookstores for $27.95. For more information, visit
