In suburban Arizona, 1964, Connie Helmericks announced to her two daughters, 12-year-old Ann and 14-year-old Jean, "We're going to make a canoe expedition to the Arctic Ocean." And for two successive summers, that's exactly what they did. Down the Wild River North is the vividly told story of their adventures in the remote northern reaches of Canada and the Arctic, in a twenty-foot canoe, amidst a wondrous and vast landscape. A wilderness adventure, and a story of family bonds and spiritual renewal.
