Description

As seen on PBS comes this "living history" series about eight "average people" (7 men and one women) who volunteer to relive an adventure. The epic 1200 kilometer journey by the Hudson's Bay Company fur traders of 1840s from Winnipeg, to the Hudson Bay. They undertake this grueling and difficult journey through the heart of the Canadian wilderness in a historically accurate York Boat (a hand made wooden boat 40 ft. x 8 ft.) with only period provisions. Rowing 12 to 14 hours a day, carrying 180 lb. packs, shooting the rapids, and covering over 1200 kilometers, the trip will take eight to twelve weeks. The journey is an exploration of the strength of the human spirit, and a return to the real experiences when empires battled for the the wealth of the new world.
