The South Nahanni River of Canada's North west Territories has captivated canoeists and adventurers for decades. The author tells how they transported their provisions in to the remote area and built their cabin on the South Nahanni River, an area cut off from the outside world by mountain ranges, its only highway the wild river that carves its way through cliffs a thousand feet high. Here the Moores lived for a year, and travelled by canoe, foot, snowshoe, and ski on the isolated land they came to love. It was not always idyllic: they fought against loneliness and dangerously cold temperatures, John narrowly escaped being crushed under their food cache and both fell through the ice into the freezing waters of the river. An engaging adventure story, this is also a blueprint for anyone wishing to make a wilderness-living dream come true. Included in this edition are the author's thoughts twenty years after the adventure as she and John embark on a return visit to the Nahanni with their two children.Joanne Moore is the author of 'Nahanni Trailhead' with ISBN 9780888394644 and ISBN 0888394640.
