Here are some things reviewers are saying about the book:


“Refreshingly RelatableUncharted [is a] firm reminder that despite the independent allure of solo travel, sometimes we can’t change on our own.”

— Outside


“A deftly written Wild for the empty-nest set—and for anyone who’s ever arrived at a crossroads in life.”
—Marika Cain, Virtuoso Life


“Like Cheryl Strayed and M. Wylie Blanchett, Kim Brown Seely reminds us that the best travel narratives are about emotional explorations even more than physical ones… what makes this book exceptional is the way its journey slows you down and expands your soul.”

— Erica Bauermeister, bestselling author of The Scent Keeper

“Seely’s travel writing is luminous, her prose mystical and revelatory...[her] nautical journey makes for an intimate, satisfying narrative.”
— Publishers Weekly


Uncharted is the Moby Dick of empty-nest tales. Kim Brown Seely, her sons suddenly grown-up and gone, journeys on a sailboat through risky Northwest waters… She writes so exquisitely well—you can hear the humpback whales breathe.”

—Blaine Harden, bestselling author of Escape from Camp 14


Uncharted is a marvelous journey of beauty and wonder, love and loss, loons and eagles, hemlocks and giant kelp, sea wolves, humpback whales, and bears. Kim Brown Seely celebrates it all: gale warnings, napkin-drawn maps, the luxury of slowness, the exuberance of disco dancing at the dish sink, and the hard-won grace of letting go and stepping out into the rain.”
—Ana Maria Spagna, author of Uplake


“A luminous meditation on the changing nature of love.”
—Leslie T. Sharpe, author of The Quarry Fox

“A beautifully transporting journey.”
—Paul Nicklen, National Geographic photographer


“Through uncommonly brilliant storytelling, Uncharted takes us on a timeless and gripping journey of transformation… with the moon and tides; the sun and seasons; the wind and rain; indigenous cultures; and wildly mystical encounters with beings of the land, water, and sky. Kim Brown Seely writes intimately of this magical quest with her husband, Jeff. Uncharted is a must read for those feeling lost in modern confusion, as Kim’s beautiful and accessible writing provides an essential map back home to ourselves.”
—Jon Young, author of What the Robin Knows: How Birds Reveal the Secrets of the Natural World
