Alone Across Canada’s Arctic.

To mark Canadian Confederation’s 150th in 2017, Adam Shoalts embarked on an epic journey alone across Canada’s Arctic, hiking and canoeing nearly 4000 kilometres. The journey took him over mountains, up rivers, across tundra, and down wild waterways in the heart of the world’s greatest wilderness. The story of this incredible solo journey is told in his national bestselling and award-winning book Beyond the Trees. Get your copy today from Amazon or Indigo, or your local bookstore.
