Adam Shoalts Beyond the Trees: A Journey Alone Across Canada’s Arctic

About this event

National best-selling author and professional adventurer Adam Shoalts takes us on the journey of a lifetime: a nearly 4,000 km solo odyssey by canoe across Canada’s Arctic. This harrowing expedition took almost four months to complete and years of preparation. Shoalts will share photos from his journey, which involved weaving through ice floes, facing down snarling bears and galloping musk-ox, and paddling under the midnight sun in a land as old as time. But also why we urgently need to save vast wild places while it’s still possible.

Bio: Adam Shoalts, PhD, is a national best-selling author, adventurer, and the Westaway Explorer-in-Residence of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society. A geographer, archaeologist, and historian, Shoalts is best known for his long solo wilderness journeys. His award-winning books include Beyond the Trees, Alone Against the North, A History of Canada in 10 Maps, and most recently, The Whisper on the Night Wind. He enjoys long walks in the woods.
