From the fiords of northern Labrador to the icefields of western Greenland, from the outports of Newfoundland to the tiny fishing villages of Iceland and the Faroe Isles, best-selling author and lifelong sailor Myron Arms chronicles the experience of two-and-a-half decades of voyaging into some of the most remote destinations on Earth.Presented as a series of sixteen personal essays,True North is at once a tale of white-knuckled adventure, a celebration of natural places, and a quest for contact with the planet we live on. Thought-provoking and environmentally savvy, True North expresses one man's fierce determination to encounter the natural world, to live deliberately within it, to strive to minimize one's footprint upon it, and to bear witness to it before it is altered irretrievably-before it is lost.
