Northern Odyssey Told

By The Spokesman-Review


Montana adventurers Alan Kesselheim and Marypat Zitzer, paddled a canoe 1,700 miles through northern Canada in a 13-month adventure that included holing up for the winter in a remote cabin. They made the best of their situation, and a baby to boot.

Kesselheim has written a book on the journey called “Going Inside.” But adventure buffs can get a more intimate account during a slide show and reading Saturday, 7:30 p.m., at Auntie’s Bookstore, 402 W. Main.

The trip, which included encounters with northern lights, nine months of ice-up and tundra creatures such as musk oxen and grizzly bears, ended near the Arctic Circle with Marypat seven months pregnant. , DataTimes
