Description: Is an unusual and exciting story of two men who journey 7,000 miles in 176 days and encounter nearly every obstacle that nature can find to frustrate man. Icy portages, raging rivers, capsized canoes, and the fall freeze-up of the Bering Sea are just a few of the obstacles captured in the film. Their journey portrays the indomitable spirit of man as the voyagers reach within themselves to overcome the forces of nature. Also featured is a panoramic view of wildlife in British Columbia. Moose, elk, caribou, waterfowl and many other species are captured on film in their natural habitat and from places man rarely inhabits. No one, not even the colorful voyagers of centuries past, have duplicated their goal of 7,000 miles in 176 days. Their mode of travel is the same as the ancients; a canoe, their own power. No motors, no guides or follow-up crew or assistance of any kind on land or water.

"One of my favorite things about LSSU is its size. The classrooms, especially as you get to the upper levels, get smaller, so you not only have a chance to discuss your ideas in an honest, supportive manner, but you also get to know your professors and classmates. The upper level courses really allow you to focus on what you love, and the small class size allows you to have time to share and to discuss your ideas."
