Ke the route his father never travelled except in his beloved song “The Northwest Passage” which he performs both as anthem and lament at sea And she guides us through her own personal odyssey emigrating from England to Canada as a child and discovering both what was lost and what was gained as a result of that journeyIn breathtaking prose charged with vivid descriptions of the land and its people Kathleen Winter’s Boundless is a haunting and powerful story and a homage to the ever evolving and magnetic power of the Nor. I was expecting a writing mix of history science and personal experience but this book was personal an introspective journey through the Northwest Passage You get to know the writer and the other members of the I want to say cruise but that s not right and you start to see Canada as a land with two identities superimposed aboriginal and European The Writer purposely avoids any scientific look at the land She keeps her distance from the geologists on board the ship and even mocks them these people look at the moon and only want to tell you what kind of rocks it s made of not a direct uote but she says something like that She is the type who picks up a certain rock because it speaks to her not because it is a fascinating specimen Three uarters through and the book started to lose its momentum for me and after reading half a chapter about her love of knitting I was beginning to think that I was just touring the arctic with some dotty ex hippy But then the book ends on a powerful note You see how she has been profoundly changed by the expedition and you re glad you took the trip Besides Kathleen Winter s writing is so poetic and insightful that the book is a pleasure to read for that alone
