Sense of Adventure: an Account of a Journey in the Canadian Wilderness, is the first detailed published account of the exceptionally remote and obscure Otoskwin River in history.
This fast-paced, action-backed book reads more like an adventure novel than a simple day-by-day account of Shoalts' first major expedition, undertaken when he was just 18 and fresh out of high school.
It details with humour, wit, and plenty of self-deprecation his journey deep into the heart of the vast Canadian wilderness with his best friend Wes Crowe. A true coming-of-age tale of adventure that nearly spelled the end of Adam and Wes...
Young and relatively inexperienced, with limited food and equipment, outdated maps and no GPS, they struggled over hundreds of kilometres of dense boreal forest, canoeing and hiking, in a bid to explore one of the remotest and most beautiful areas of the globe.
The book is a must-read for all canoeing, hiking, and other outdoor enthusiasts!
