Don't ever think the era of adventurers or explorers is over, they are still very much alive and well, as the author and her husband can attest to. They take on an epic journey by themselves through the arctic circle, over 4,000 miles of walking and paddling and avoiding bear attacks. It is a joy to be taken along with them, through one of the last wildernesses on earth, a place that hosts the last great mammal migration, done by the caribou, that they have the honor to witness. You may not make it yourself, but with such beautifully descriptive writing, you will feel like you have seen it. Highly Recommend! ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty
