  Packed full of information, photographs and maps illustrating the fascinating natural and cultural history of the Peel River region, the book is a traveller's guide to eight premiere mountain rivers including the renowned Three Rivers--the Wind, Snake and Bonnet Plume--as well as the Hart, Blackstone, Ogilvie and the legendary Rat River .

Reworked by Pleistocene ice, the rugged Peel region includes pockets of unglaciated Beringian landscapes and the northern limit of the boreal forest. A homeland to the Tetlit Gwichin and Nacho Nyak Dun, this still remote region attracted some of the Yukon's earliest explorers, as well as fur traders, goldrushers and other adventurers. The Lost Patrol lost its way here, as did the Bishop who ate his boots.

With detailed logistics and river descriptions, along with suggestions for safe and low impact tripping, the book will appeal to paddlers, hikers and others interested in the North. Essays on conservation and wilderness travel round out the content of the book. The book celebrates a wild northern landscape which conservationists have worked to protect for more than 15 years.
