The McGuffins share with readers the magnificent beauty of the Great Lakes Heritage Coast The Great Lakes Heritage Coast is an area that includes 1.1 million hectares of coastline along the north shore of Lake Superior and into Georgian Bay that has been recognized by the Ontario Government as a natural resource to be preserved and protected. As champions of Canada's wilderness, the McGuffins vowed to support this project and bring attention to the Heritage Coast by paddling the route and reporting on their adventure. For three months in the summer of 2002, Gary, Joanie, their three-year-old daughter, Sila, and their Alaskan Malamute, Kalija, paddled the route. The 3,000-km trip from Thunder Bay to Port Severn took them into some of the most breathtaking wilderness Canada has to offer. Through their written narrative and more than a hundred vibrant full-colour photographs, the McGuffins share with readers the things that make this trip unforgettable: the awe-inspiring star-filled skies, the rich variety of flora and fauna, the warmth of campfires on cool nights, the morning sun reflecting off pristine lakes, and the majestic ancient trees that abound in the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence forest. This book is a tribute to that beauty.
