- DescriptionNorthern Wilderness is a stunning celebration of one of earth's great wildernesses. Ray Mears journeys on foot, by cae and by swshoe through mountains, forests, tundra and ice in a land where roads are still scarce. He explores the vast Boreal Forest and its rich animal life, and travels across the Hudson Bay by cae, telling the story of the fur trappers who traded with the hat manufacturers of England. Ray follows the paths of the great early rthern explorers, Samuel Hearne and David Thompson, who survived through their kwledge of what we w call bushcraft, as they trekked across the tundra and the Rocky Mountains. He explores the frozen rth and learns the ways of the Inuit, who teach him how to combat sw blindness and build shelter. This book is rich in bushcraft, as Ray explains the unique survival techniques of the Native Canadians and the Inuit, as well as how the prospectors in the gold rush used bushcraft skills to survive in this inhospitable but awesome landscape.
