Biography/ Memoir

In suburban Arizona, 1964, Connie Helmericks announced to her two daughters, 12-year-old Ann and 14-year-old Jean, “We’re going to make a canoe expedition to the Arctic Ocean.” And for two successive summers, that’s exactly what they did. Down the Wild River North (328 pages) is the vividly told story of their adventures in the remote northern reaches of the Canadian and Arctic, in a twenty-foot canoe, amidst a wondrous and vast landscape. A wilderness adventure, and a story of family bonds and spiritual renewal.

“This is a most amazing trip few of us would ever dare – a mother and two teenage daughters traveling by canoe down rivers in the Northwest Territories over two summers. It’s a beautifully written narrative about a place few of us will ever have a chance to see, a gift of living in nature, self sufficiency, risk, and achievement from a mother to her daughters.” – Merri Melde
