      This was a mini-biography covering four of Jon Turk's expeditions, with a fifth mentioned in the epilogue. It wasn't clear at the beginning that the intent was to indicate his personal growth of attitude towards how he conducted his expeditions and what he expected to get out of them. The first expedition covered was so sparsely filled in with details, that as a narrative missing complete background information such as planning, equipment, political clearances, route selection, etc. it would hav [...]

      A really great adventure story lately one of my past times has been to seek out out-of-print (by not too many years) adventure books. They say "if you want a new idea, read an old book" (or something like that), well, the gist of that is there is no true "new adventure." While over a decade old, I have to say that this book and the exploits that Turk writes about are still relatively new, yet his angle is novel. Haven't found anything quite like it. One thing for sure for someone his age, he sur [...]

      If you enjoy true adventure stories then you would probably enjoy reading of Jon Turks travels in a kayak around the Cape Horn and along the northern coast of North America. He took his wife on a trip from the continent over to Baffin Island and then Greenland. The two of them were a thousand miles from anywhere and definitly on their own form months at a time. While his adventures lack falling off the cliff moments they are staggering in their temerity.

      I read this book, met the author a year after moving to Colorado at the Boulder Bookstore. I was pursuing books in my personal library earlier today and this book called to me. I love what Turk wrote in my copy "Enjoy the planet; it's the best one we've got" I am using that as a mantra to have big adventures on Earth in 2017. And I am going to reread this book now.

      Sometimes I get bored with self-indulgent white-man vs. nature epics.
