How does a man save his own life? In 1908 Dr. Wilfred Grenfell, a medical missionary in northern Newfoundland, was traveling by dog team to treat a patient. In his haste Grenfell took a short cut across the sea ice. A change of wind and ice conditions left the doctor and his dogs stranded on an ice pan, their komatik and provisions lost. Grenfell came close to perishing. This is his account of this near fatal misadventure.

I loved this short story. It really gives and insight into mans survival instinct (not to minimize this man's basic knowledge of his world). I learned a lot about NFLD and the relationship to the environment there.
