George Grinnell was one of six youngmen who set off on the 1955 expedition led by experienced wilderness canoeist Art Moffatt.

Poorly planned and executed, the journey seemed doomed from the start. Ignoring the approaching winter, the men became entrancedwith the peace and beauty of the arctic in autumn. As winter closed in, they suddenly faced numbing cold and dwindling food. When the crew is swept over a waterfall, Moffatt is killed and most of the gear and emergencyfood supplies destroyed.

Confronting freezing conditions and near starvation, the remaining crew struggled to make it back to civilization. For Grinnell, the three-month expedition was both a rite of passage and aspiritual odyssey. In the Barrens, he lost his sense of identity and what he had been conditioned to think about society and himself. Forever changed by the experience, he unsparingly describes how the expeditioninfluenced his adult life and what powerful insights he was able to glean from this life-altering experience.
