From the Publisher“It made my heart proud to read this book by Karsten Heuer, a man with a great imagination and an even greater dream.”
–Don Starkell, author of Paddle to the Amazon and Paddle to the Arctic
“Karsten Heuer has experienced the adventure of a lifetime – crossing icy rivers, fending off attacking bears, overcoming corporate misdeeds – in support of a beautiful idea. His story stirs the blood. Yet it also gives gentle pause for thought. This book is a genuine Canadian classic that belongs on the bookshelf of anyone who cares about wildlife and wild places.”
–Ben Gadd, author of Handbook of the Canadian Rockies and Raven’s End
“Everyone should go on a long walk through untracked wilderness at least once in their lifetime, and you need look no further than Karsten Heuer’s new book to understand why. Walking the Big Wild is more than the account of an extraordinary expedition, it is the spirited tale of an inner journey that entertains, informs, and inspires. Heuer seamlessly blends his considerable talents as a keen observer and knowledgeable naturalist to bring the landscape around him to life. This starkly honest and deeply personal account is a compelling cry for a new ethos in land management and wildlife conservation. It will also make you want to put on your boots and head for the woods.”
–Bruce Kirkby, author of Sand Dance.
