Adam Shoalts has been called one of Canada’s greatest living explorers and in 2017 completed a nearly 4,000 km solo journey across Canada’s Arctic. From the Yukon to Nunavut, he travels up the Coppermine River, poles for days through the pack of Great Bear Lake, portages across fields of jagged rocks that stretch to the horizon, paddles through gales, and navigates labyrinths of swamps. He experiences the crystalline Arctic water at the bottom of fathomless pristine lakes, the company of wolves loping curiously alongside his route, the astonishing diversity of the Arctic ecosystems, from the countless lakes of the swampy wetlands to the dunes of a northern desert. Heart stopping, filled with wonder, and beautifully attentive to the majesty of the natural world, Beyond the Trees captures the ache for adventure as only an adventurer can.
