The book provides orientation through the complex waterways along with maps and port guides, and entertains with stories and photographs. Keeping with the maritime theme but with a different audience in mind, Upton 's Runaways on the Inside Passage is a children's book about twins who are abandoned by their mother and who call on an elderly fisherman to help them look for their father in Alaska. She stepped wordlessly inside, crossed the small living room, and looked into the bedrooms and tiny kitchen alcove.
Except for two sleeping bags and several boxes of clothes, the house was empty. Without furniture, it seemed stark, dingy, and tired.

Thirteen-year-old twins are stranded in November when their mother desserts them and they realize that the landlord is going to call the police or social workers who will put them in foster homes. Quickly Annie decides that they should seek out a friend of their father whom they haven't seen for years. Lars, while in poor health, welcomes the twins onto his fishing boat and agrees to take them up to Alaska, the last place their father was spotted. Together, with the expertise of the elderly fisherman and the energy of the twins, they sail the 40 foot fishing boat up the inside passage from Seattle to Hidden Cove, Alaska.
Adventures, such as storms, faulty engines, police boats and illness, arrive in every chapter.
As their captain's health fails, the twins find that they are in charge. By the end of the journey, they are happily reunited with their father, and Lars is receiving needed medical attention. The author, Joe Upton, is very knowledgeable about boating as is apparent from the situations described in the voyage.
Each chapter includes a map of the section traveled.
