Modern-day explorer treks to Dunnville

To The Haldimand Press

DUNNVILLE—Imagine trekking almost 4,000km across Canada’s Arctic all alone. Adam Shoalts doesn’t have to imagine it. He lived it. In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation in 2017, Shoalts spent four months traveling by foot and canoe over mountains, up rivers, across tundra, and through subarctic forest in the world’s greatest wilderness. The Toronto Star has called him “Canada’s Indiana Jones—portaging in the north, dodging scary rapids, plunging into darkness, and surviving to tell the tale.”

On Saturday, March 30, 2019 at 2 p.m., at the Grandview Lodge Auditorium (657 Lock Street West, Dunnville), Shoalts will talk about his most recent book, “A History of Canada in Ten Maps: Epic Stories of Charting a Mysterious Land”.  The program is free, but space is limited. Reservations are required. Call the Dunnville Library at 289-674-0400 ext. 3 for reservations.
