Paddlenorth tells the riveting story of Jennifer Kingsley’s 54-day paddling adventure on the Back River in the northern wilderness of the Arctic as she and her five companions 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.

Crocodiles and Ice recounts Jon Turk's journey from suburban Connecticut into Deep Wild, an ancient passage, repeated ? in one form or another ? a zillion times, and ignored just as often. It is a storyteller's passage of discovery, full of high adventure and humour on his multiple award-winning Ellesmere Circumnavigation, as well as on expeditions in the jungles and oceans of the Solomon Islands, on the Himalayan plateau, and across the mountains of northern British Columbia. Throughout all these expeditions, Crocodiles and Ice explores a Consciousness Revolution toward a personal, spiritual, and reciprocal relationship with the planet ? even as our oil-soaked, internet-crazed, consumer-oriented society rushes rapidly and recklessly into massive and catastrophic climate change. He invites his readers to listen to our ancestors, a wolf that lingers, a Siberian shaman, a Chinese bicycle nomad, a lonely Tlingit warrior laying down to die in a storm, and the landscapes themselves. Because beyond technological marvels and imagined responsibility, there lies a glorious and sustainable lifestyle that is based ? not on consumerism and consumption ? but on Deep Wild as a place of solace, sanity, and hope.
