Self-styled arctic outdoorsman, John Hornby had already compromised his abilities to survive in the tundra through several incidents of near starvation, and by injuries suffered as a soldier in World War I. He had openly admitted to peers that “he had had enough of the north and wished he had never come”. Yet, foolishly, he conscripted his young cousin, nineteen year-old Edgar Christian, and a willing third party, twenty-nine year-old Harold Adlard, both having no survival training or outdoor experience, to join him on an adventure into the most isolated part of the Canadian northland – the Thelon River in the Northwest Territories. This is a story about the tragic Hornby expedition of 1926. One of Canada’s most legendary stories, the reader embarks on a journey as if they were there with Hornby and his two charges. Wilson adds dialogue to the events that unfold using excerpts from Edgar’s surviving diary. Not sparing any detail, the author applies his own vast knowledge of winter survival to events that led the three to disaster in a land that shows no mercy to the ill-prepared. Wilson bravely delves into the psychology of men in isolation when deprived of hope but not of love.

Manitoba’s Hayes River runs over six hundred kilometers from near Norway House to Hudson Bay. On its rush to the sea, the Hayes races over forty-five rapids and waterfalls as it drops down from the Precambrian Shield to the Hudson Bay Lowlands. This great waterway, the largest naturally flowing river in Manitoba, served as the highway for settlers bound for the Red River colony, ferrying their worldly goods in York boats and canoes, struggling against the mighty currents. Traditionally used for transport and hunting by the indigenous Cree, the Hayes became a major fur trade route in the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries, being explored by such luminaries (Pierre Radisson (1682), Henry Kelsey (1690) David Thompson (1784), Sir John Franklin (1819), and J.B. Tyrrell (1892). This is the account of the author’s invitational journey on the Hayes from Norway House to Oxford House by traditional York boat with a crew of First Nation Cree, and later, from Oxford House to York Factory by canoe in the company of other intrepid canoeists – modern-day voyageurs reliving the past.

"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

Cradled in Canada’s geographic centre, Manitoba is home to serene stretches of wilderness interspersed with charming rural communities and rich pockets of outdoor recreation opportunity. Over half of the province’s population lives in the capital city of Winnipeg, leaving the rest of Manitoba wide-open for exploring. In the south, the landscape is a diverse mix of tall grass prairie, pine forest and even desert-like sand dunes. As you move north you will encounter the majestic rock of the Canadian Shield and, further north still, a strip of Arctic tundra along Hudson Bay. Throughout the province, lakes of all shapes and sizes dot the landscape, creating an incredible abundance of fishing opportunities.
