An indispensable guide. TNT Magazine.
From the Back Cover
North Canada remains one of the world's least explored wildernesses, an unforgiving environment that is just beginning to open up to the adventurous traveler. From the gold-mining towns of the Yukon to the newly created territory of Nunavut, this vast area of forests, tundra and rivers is home to an abundance of wildlife. In this new Bradt guide, author Geoffrey Roy highlights the attractions of each of northern Canada's three territories, as well as the fringes of Alaska and the polar-bear capital of the world, Churchill. Whether you are fascinated by bears, drawn by the mysteries of the Northern Lights or simply seeking adventure, this is the guide you need. This guide contains information on natural history and conservation, planning and preparation, health and safety, including survival advice, people and culture, adventure activities from dog-sledging and snowmobiling to kayaking and heli-skiing. There is also information on gateway cities - Vancouver, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Ottawa and Montreal. (5 1/2 x 8 1/2, 286 pages, color photos, illustrations, maps, charts)
