Book Description
In the dead of winter, 1908, Dr. Wilfred Grenfell set out on a medical mission from his hospital headquarters at St. Anthony to save the life of a young boy.

Against the advice of local residents, he ventured across the ice by dogsled, ill-prepared for the treacherous northern elements.

While he was crossing Hare Bay, the ice opened up and started drifting, stranding the doctor and his sled dogs.

This is the story of Dr. Grenfell's harrowing adventure on the deadly Arctic ice.

About the Author
Earl B. Pilgrim was born in St. Anthony in 1939. He received his early education in Roddickton, later studying Forestry at the College of Trades and Technology in St. Johnís.

He began his adult career in 1960 as an Infantryman in the Canadian Army, serving with the Princess Patriciaís Canadian Light Infantry. While there, he became involved in the sport of boxing, eventually becoming the Canadian Light Heavyweight Boxing Champion.

Following a stint in the Forces, he took a job as a Forest Ranger with the Newfoundland and Labrador Forestry Department. During this time, he came to recognize the plight of the big game population on Newfoundlandís Great Northern Peninsula. After nine years as a forest warden, he became a wildlife protection officer with the Newfoundland Wildlife Service.
