The story of the 2004 Nordkapp Expedition, a 500-km dog-sled expedition on the northernmost tip of Norway. Cant’s story encapsulates the magic, tedium, and sheer endurance of working in unfamiliar terrain. It tells of the harshness of the climate, the beauty of being far from the civilised world as we know it, the trust you have to earn from your dogs if you want them to obey, the realities of working on a daily basis with this ancient mode of transport used by an ancient culture which still survives today. Cant takes the reader on a journey of discovery to experience what it is like to inhabit such an (at times) inhospitable land. A story of triumph over disaster, of three nationalities and three different cultures working as one, of the fact that no matter how tired you are the dogs always come first.
