As a child, I sneaked in my brothers` rooms to read their adventure books like "Ivanhoe", "The Leatherstocking Tales", "Treasure Island", "Robinson Crusoe", "Huckleberry Finn".

The Arctic is a place of immense fascination for me. I traveled on the icebreaker of the Canadian Coast Guard through the legendary Northwest Passage. Unforgettable.
For this book, I drove from Whitehorse to Dawson City, a goldminers` town and historic locati... Read more of this blog post »
