After accelerating their studies and graduating high school early, two teenagers set off from their hometown in Minnesota to embark on a 2,200 mile canoe journey up the heart of North America. Their destination: the permafrost shores of Hudson Bay. Inspired by a passion for the simple life, where gadgets and schedules are replaced by nature and its harsh beauty, the duo found something that many believe is lost—a true adventure. Follow the pair up the flooding Minnesota River and through the prairie plains of North Dakota, across man-sized waves on Lake Winnipeg, and down the foaming rapids of the Canadian north. The triumphs and trials of the unforgiving wild challenged their friendship, dreams, and lives in a way that even they could have never predicted. For those who have dreamt of wilderness escape, or those who prefer to simply read about it, Adventure North will spur the imaginative spirit, and remind you that adventure is always just around the next bend.

Sean teaches 8th grade social studies and coaches high school hockey and lacrosse in Chaska, MN. After canoeing to Hudson Bay, he attended Minnesota State University, Mankato, where he received both his Bachelors and Masters degrees in Education. In the summer of 2011, he and three college friends (Colton Witte, Blake Spanier, and Sam Ebenreiter) lived off the land in the Absaroka-Beartooth Region of Montana for one month. Sean currently lives in Chaska with his wife and children.Review:
"What could be a better tribute to Eric Sevareid than that these two delightful, adventuresome, and modest young men undertook to recreate the great broadcaster's adolescent canoe trip from Minneapolis to Hudson Bay? As you are swept along with Colton and Sean in Adventure North, you can't help liking these two remarkable young men as they pursue what will surely be the most important rite of passage in their lives. Now, if they use what they have learned in young manhood as wisely as did Sevareid, they might just change the world." Clay Jenkinson, Author of The Character of Meriwether Lewis: Explorer in the Wilderness, Bismarck, North Dakota "Adventure North fits the bill as a lively, entertaining and stirring account of teenage exploits in the natural world rarely sought out for, much less experienced, by today's youth. In truth, however, it is an inspirational narrative for all ages on personal growth through pushing past one's comfort zone, reliance on others, and most importantly, friendship. While the title indicates the route taken by the pair, it easily symbolizes the upwardly character development that results." Charles Friedbauer, Outdoors Reporter, Writer, Chaska, Minnesota
