From their earliest years together, Gary and Joanie McGuffin have spent their lives in the wilderness. Their honeymoon was a two-year, 6,000-mile (9,656 km) journey from the Gulf of St. Lawrence to the Beaufort Sea. And every year since, they have led canoeing and kayaking expeditions across northern Canada, the United States and elsewhere around the world. In Wilderness Paddling 2018, the McGuffins' pictures take you to new places of stunning beauty, and may well inspire your own wilderness adventure.
In addition to their expeditions as professional adventurers, Gary and Joanie are known worldwide for their high-profile conservation efforts. They are the authors of the best-selling books Paddle Your Own Canoe, Paddle Your Own Kayak, Wilderness Ontario and Where Rivers Run.
