How it began….

This expedition started with an attempt to locate the ruins of an old fur trade post, and to solve a strange mystery connected with it. A century ago, multiple eye-witnesses described unusual encounters with large, unknown creatures at this isolated place…picking up the trail using clues left in old diaries and letters, Shoalts embarked deep into the wilderness to unravel this mystery. With a mixed martial arts fighter as an expedition partner, the two ended up far off the beaten track, bushwhacking through pathless woods, across dreary swamps, paddling big waves off the Labrador coast, and trekking deep into isolated mountain caves on a journey that pushed them to their limit. The full story of Adam’s journey into Labrador’s remote Mealy Mountains is told in his new bestselling book, The Whisper on the Night Wind. It’s a book that weaves together science, folklore, history and exploration into a fascinating saga.
