Thelon: A River Sanctuary by David F. Pelly

By David F. Pelly

David Pelly tells the Thelon's tale, exploring the secret of Man's courting with this targeted position within the middle of Canada's gigantic Arctic barrenlands. From Thanadelthur and Telaruk to J.W. Tyrrell, John Hornby and Eric Morse, the historical past is special, entire and interesting. The Thelon is the atmosphere for a compelling Canadian experience story -- with all its drama, intrigue, pleasure and tragedy. however the author is going past that to consider the importance of the Thelon barren region, and to ascertain its doubtful future."It is the richness of human event, layered on most sensible of the average splendour of the river valley and its natural world, that actually units the Thelon aside. where has a background, either local and non-Native, which supplies it status past the intrinsic worth of barren region itself."David Pelly writes as person who has been there repeatedly. He understands the Thelon from own adventure. As a contract author for two decades, he has travelled many components of the Arctic, yet claims that "nowhere attracts me again extra powerfully than the Thelon."
