Three men set out to explore the interior of Canadian Labrador, looking for adventure and material for new maps and magazine articles. But a wrong turn proves perilous, and their quest ends in freezing and starvation. Jody Richardson brings an appropriate sense of melancholy to Wallace's first-person account. Richardson's even pacing and clear tone offer understanding, if not excitement, as the men move from anticipation through exhilaration, trepidation, and resignation. His unfamiliar pronunciation of Canadian place names and common camping terms gives the impression that the trip took place over a century ago. Without these reminders, the story might have taken place last week or last year. R.L.L. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 06]
