NEVER BEFORE, NEVER AGAIN
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.
