This story from our Language, Arts, & Culture section appears in the March 2015 issue of Northern Public Affairs.

Laurel Parry’s gripping story of survival in Kluane National Park explores the beauty of Yukon’s landscape and the strength of brotherly bonds. This piece of narrative nonfiction recounts the experiences of Parry’s husband Bill (above) and his brothers RJ and Owen on a hiking trip in 1994. To write this story, Parry drew upon extensive interviewing with the brothers, along with research into the geological features specific to the Kluane region. It is illustrated with photos taken during and after the trip.

Laurel Parry is a writer living in Whitehorse, Yukon. This work was presented through the support of the Emerging Northern Writers and Artists Fund and the Salamander Foundation.
