Young David Halsey had a dream to cross the vast 4,700 mile span of Canada using only primitive means: hiking and snowshoeing, driving a dogsled and canoeing. After much intense research, he and 3 companions embarked on this venture on May 4, 1977 using a route based on historic paths of trappers, traders and explorers. Four days and 45 miles later, his companions aborted their participation in the trek. With tenacity, David regrouped and on May 20th set out alone to follow his dream.
