Winner of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario's 2016 Young Authors Award Winner of the 2017 Louise de Kiriline Award for Nonfiction The age of exploration is not over When Adam Shoalts ventured into the largest unexplored wilderness on the planet he hoped to set foot where no one had ever gone before What he discovered surprised even him Shoalts was no stranger to the wilderness He had hacked his way through jungles and swamp had stared down polar bears and climbed mountains But one spot on the map called out to him irresistibly the Hudson Bay Lowlands a trackless expanse of muskeg and lonely rivers caribou and wolf anof the north parts of which to this day remain unexplored Cutting through this forbidding landscape is a river no explorer trapper or canoeist had left any record of paddling It was this river that Shoalts was obsessively determined to explore It took him several attempts and years of research But finally alone he found the headwaters of the mysterious river He believed he had discovered what he had set out to find But the adventure had just begun Unexpected dangers awaited him downstream Gripping and often poetic Alone Against the North is a classic adventure story of single minded obsession physical hardship and the restless sense of wonder that every explorer has in common But what does exploration mean in an age when satellite imagery of even the remotest corner of the planet is available to anyone with a phone? Is there anything left to explore? What Shoalts discovered as he paddled downriver was a series of unmapped waterfalls that could easily have killed him Just as astonishing was the media reaction when he got back to civilization He was crowned “Canada’s Indiana Jones” and appeared on morning television He was feted by the Royal Canadian Geographical Society and congratulated by the Governor General People were enthralled by Shoalts’s proof that the world is bigger than we think Shoalts’s story makes it clear that the world can become known only by getting out of our cars and armchairs and setting out into the unknown where every step is different from the one before and something you may never have imagined lies around the next curve in the river.
