Treacherous and remote, the Arctic and the fabled Northwest Passage have long been elusive goals for explorers. Gerard Kenney shares stories of exploration in the Arctic region. This three-book bundle includes:

Ships of Wood and Men of Iron: A Norewegian-Canadian Saga of Exploration in the High Arctic
A history of explorations of the Arctic in Canada, beginning with Otto Sverdrup's Norwegian expedition.

Dangerous Passage: Issues in the Arctic
The story of the opening up of the Northwest Passage and the ensuing potential risks to the Arctic environment and Canadian sovereignty are explored.

Lake of the Old Uncles
Kenney recounts a journey that led him to build a log cabin on the small, inaccessible Lake of Old Uncles and shares a personal philosophy inspired by Henry David Thoreau.

Gerard Kenney -- his friends call him Gerry -- was born in St. Remi d'Amherst not far from Mont Tremblant, Quebec, in 1931. Though a Canadian, he spent the first sixteen years of his life in New York City except for the months of July and August, which he enjoyed in the small French-Canadian village of his birth. In 1948, he returned to his native Canada and has lived there ever since. Gerard passed away December 10, 2014.
