MAGNETIC NORTH: A Trek Across Canada.

Edition: 1st trade paperback printing.

San Francisco: Sierra Club Books, (1991). First edition - A trek across Canada from the Pacific to the Atlantic by foot, dogsled and canoe in 1977. "Halsey was the first in modern times to plan and execute a completely nonmotorized crossing of Canada. Joined by photographer Peter Souchuk and a scruffy half-wild dog, he headed east from British Columbia. Here is the first-hand account, taken from his journals and his own rough drafts of the hiking, canoeing, dogsledding, snowshoeing, and wilderness camping they did, and the Canadians they met along the way." (Library Journal) This account is even more poignant, knowing that he met an untimely death not long after, suffering from depression and perhaps the effects of medication - and so the book was completed by Landau. Color photographs. Maps, bibliography, index of place names. Slightly oversized square format. 252 pp. ISBN: 0-871565668.

Condition: Very good in glossy illustrated wrappers.
