Description

Jamie Bastedo looks into the heart of one of Canada's largest yet least understood regions-the subarctic wilderness. Told with a passion for northern people and an exacting eye for detail, Reaching North celebrates a vast northern wilderness, drawing inspiration from its basement rock all the way to the aurora borealis.
