Canada's Barren Lands -- that rugged, desolate, heroically beautiful part of the Northwest Territories -- was one of the last great unexplored areas of North America. In 1923 John Hornby and James Critchell-Bullock set off on a year-long expedition to the Barrens, supported only their wits and their weapons. Based on Bullock's diaries, Snow Man is the story of that journey and a testament to the strength of human character. We share in Hornby's and Bullock's sufferings and triumphs as they canoe and portage across the endless taiga, endure terrible hunger, and ultimately achieve their goal of being the first white men to live off the Barren's for an entire year.
