In the summer of 1994, Marilyn Bursey,
accompanied by her husband, Brian, travelled to the northern tip of Labrador.
For the next four weeks, they would hike
through the rugged and beautiful Torngat
Mountains, one of North America's most
remote and inaccessible regions. This is
her story of their incredible journey.
The result is a delightful read of land travel through the Torngat Mountains -- not an easy thing to find. Their one-month trip from Ryans Bay to Saglek Fiord crosses through the heart of the Torngats. The author was new to the area and we are treated to her wonder at the region along with beautiful photos of this stark, rugged landscape. They made their way south crossing rivers, hiking glaciers and rounding fjords and ended up having a long wait for their pickup. It's a must read for any hiker in the area and great for those who long to roam the Labrador Highlands.
