Paddle to the Arctic: The Incredible Story Of A Kayak Quest Across The Roof Of The World - new book

ISBN: 9780771082481

Don Starkell decided to paddle a kayak from Hudson Bay 3,000 miles through the Northwest Passage. Paddle to the Arctic is Don's diary of his journey from Churchill, Manitoba, north and then west all the way to Tuktoyaktuk, close to Alaska. The voyage took him three Arctic summers. Each attempt almost cost him his life. The first year, aged fifty-seven and very scared, Don paddled north through the thawing ice-fields. How he survived a spill in frigid waters miles from shore before fighting his way home is in itself an incredible story. On his return to Churchill he was greeted by a local with the words I was hoping you wouldn't make it back. Why? If guys like you are successful, it will encourage others to try, and the whole west shore of Hudson Bay will be piled deep with bodies. Undeterred, Don tried again the next year with two companions. Fred soon gave up, but Victoria gamely survived their jousts with polar bears, walrus, and other hazards all the way to Repulse Bay. (For most readers, one of the book's pleasures is learning the geography of the North as Don visits each community in turn.). The third year was the big test. Dragging their sleds across the peninsulas proved to be too tough, and snowmobiles had to be used to get to Spence Bay. Then it was straight across the frozen sea, hauling their kayaks on sleds. Although Victoria had to give up (My God, he'll kill us both, she told a Winnipeg paper), Don kept on, not seeing another human being for weeks, and risking his life as he waded across the thawing ice (Fell through the ice up to my neck at least ten times yesterday ...). At Cambridge Bay he abandoned the sled and threaded his way through the breaking ice bykayak, out into open water. There he confronted storms, giant Arctic seas, and (August 19 - snow!) the growing threat of freeze-up. The variety of Don's adventures will astonish every reader.

Paddle to the Arctic: The Incredible Story of a Kayak Quest Across the Roof of the World - used book

1980, ISBN: 0771082487

ID: 1916592

Don Starkell has a thing about paddling. In 1980, he won a place in the Guinness Book of World Records by paddling a canoe 12,000 miles from Winnipeg, Canada, to the mouth of the Amazon in Bel?m, Brazil. Ten years later, he decided instead to head north across the top of the world; this time he took a kayak. Paddle to the Arctic is the account of his journey, presented in diary form and illustrated with 24 pages of photographs and 12 maps. Starkell's window of opportunity was small; he had only the months between June and September to cover the 3,000 miles from Churchill to Tuktoyaktuk before the winter freeze set in. In all, he made three attempts before finally reaching his goal. The challenges were extreme: terrible storms, ice, capsizes, even polar bears. At times, he was forced to drag his kayak over impassable ice flows; at others, he nearly died from starvation. In the end, however, he achieved what seemed impossible: conquering the Northwest Passage in an Inuit kayak, a feat never before accomplished. Paddle to the Arctic is a hair-raising chronicle of one man's epic quest and eventual triumph. adventure,arctic,canada,general,inspirational,kayaking,polar regions,reference,religion and spirituality,sea kayaking Spirituality, McClelland & Stewart
