Cold Oceans: Adventures in Kayak, Rowboat, and Dogsled by Jonathan Turk

Evocative and mesmerizing, Cold Oceans</I> is the thrilling story of Jon Turks expeditions to some of the most inhospitable regions on earth. Guided by his restless spirit and tales of Elizabethan explorers, Turk first heads off alone to kayak around Cape Horn. But while paddling through the rain and mists, a racing storm scuttles his plans. On his next trip he and his partner, Chris Seashore, attempt to row the Northwest Passage in a single season, but find themselves more often dragging than rowing their boat through the half-frozen, gelatinous sea. Two years later Turk attempts to run a dog team up the east coast of Baffin Island in the Canadian Arctic, making his final camp beneath a wind-varnished iceberg locked into a frozen sea. On his last expedition hes again joined by Chris (now his wife) as they paddle sea kayaks along an ancient Inuit migration route from Ellesmere Island to Greenland. Turk writes with grace, humor, and assured knowledge of the Arctic landscape, a story of love,self-discovery, and his exuberant passion for wild places.</P
