"Travel four rivers, camp 100 nights, and paddle almost 2000 kilometres. In a friendly and inviting style, Michael Pitt shares his daily experiences and amusing anecdotes, revealing the freedom and wilderness that has defined his life." - Brian Johnston, Arctic paddler and author of "On Top of a Boulder: Notes from Tyrrell's Cairn"
"Michael Pitt's narratives of four Arctic and sub-Arctic canoe trips are as much inner as outward journeys in the search for meaning to life."- Carey Robson, master instructor, Recreational Canoeing Association of BC
"Michael's writing is engaging and immensely enjoyable... a valuable guidebook to these awesome rivers. It is personal, honest, wise, and even a bit cheeky - a joy to read." - Dan Burnett, lifelong tripper of Canadian wilderness rivers
"A real pleasure to follow Michael Pitt down four spectacular northern wilderness rivers. The book prompts the reader to be who you are no matter the source of the challenge!" - Tony Shaw, master instructor and perennial wilderness paddler
Thanks so much for the great read! And after teasing my partner with tidbits, now I shall hand it on...
