Inspired by Mina Hubbard who made an astonishing 600 mile river journey in 1905 to restore the reputation of her late husband who had died on the same route, Alexandra Pratt retraces Hubbard’s steps through this wild and ancient land.

The resulting narrative shifts effortlessly between harrowing contemporary real-life adventure, fascinating historical perspective and poignant commentary on the plight of Labrador’s Innu People.

She confronts an unforgiving landscape that surprises her at every turn. Caught between sheer cliffs, deadly rapids and a fast approaching forest fire, her story comes to a breathtaking climax that reads like a classic novel.
