Paddlenorth PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Paddlenorth free pdf In an adventure of a lifetime, Jennifer Kingsley and her five companions canoe through one of the planet's most rugged settings. They battle raging winds, impenetrable sea ice, treacherous rapids, and agonizing sores and blisters while contending with rising tensions among the group. But they also experience the lasting joy of grizzly sightings, icy swims, and the caribou's summer migration. Woven through this spellbinding narrative are often-harrowing accounts of the journeys of earlier explorers, some of whom never made it back home. "Paddlenorth" paints an indelible portrait of the spectacular Arctic landscape, rendered with a naturalist's eye and an artist's sensibility, and offers an eloquent exploration of how wilderness changes us.
