About the illustrator: Sarah Glaser

Sarah grew up in a log cabin near Kenai Lake in Moose Pass, Alaska, and is currently transplanted to (and in love with) Anchorage. Sarah works in illustration, where she is delighted to make quirky ideas come to life, whether it’s the Mountain Man of Alaska calendar, books on packrafting safety, or illustrated maps.

Sarah became immersed in whitewater kayaking at Bowdoin College in Maine. After taking the American Whitewater Association course under the tutelage of director Mike Woodruff, she ditched her senior year honors project so that she could teach pool sessions and explore New England’s whitewater rivers. Sarah graduated without honors and without regrets!
