Dick North

The gripping mystery of four RCMP officers who journeyed 475 miles through Canada's North on a dogsled … but then never returned. Their grisly fate has become part of Canadian folklore.

  • "A harrowing tale set against a vast and unforgiving landscape. If Dick North were writing his books in the United States, they would be Hollywood blockbusters."(Will Ferguson)

Dick North, a former fisheries protection officer, member of the Explorers Club and journalist, has wide experience in Alaska and the Yukon.
North is the author of The Mad Trapper of Rat River, Arctic Exodus and Sailor on Snowshoes.
Currently, he divides his time between Dawson City and Whitehorse in the Yukon, and Mackay, Idaho.
