From Canada's most accomplished adventurer and storyteller comes a gripping journey into the vastness of Canada's landscape and history. Looking out his porch window one spring morning, Adam Shoalts spotted a majestic peregrine falcon flying across the neighbouring fields near Lake Erie. Each spring, falcons migrate from southernmost Canada to remote arctic mountains. Grabbing his backpack and canoe, Shoalts resolved to follow the falcon's route north on an astonishing 3,400-kilometre journey to the Arctic. Along the way, he faces a huge variety of challenges and obstacles, including storms on the Great Lakes, finding campsites in the urban wilderness of Toronto and Montreal, avoiding busy commercial freighter traffic, gale force winds, massive hydroelectric dams, bushwhacking without trails, dealing with hunger, multiple bear encounters, and navigating white-water rapids on icy northern rivers far from any help. In his signature style, Shoalts roams as much across space as he does time, winding his way through a stunning diversity of landscapes ranging from lush Carolinian forests to lonely windswept mountains, salty seas to trackless swamps, pristine lakes to glittering mega-cities, as well as the sites of long ago battles, shipwrecks, forgotten forts, and abandoned trading posts. Through his travels, he reveals how interconnected wild places are, from the loneliest depths of the northern wilderness to busy urban parks, and the vital importance of these connections. Where the Falcon Flies invites readers on an extraordinary armchair adventure that spans five ecoregions and centuries of fascinating history, and is a masterwork by one of Canada's most successful and audacious authors.… (més)

This is a very gripping non-fiction story about one man's epic journey by canoe following the flight pattern of the Peregrine Falcon. I listened to the audio book which was read by the author himself. Adam Shoatls made this 4-month journey from Lake Eerie to the Arctic sea. He faces all kinds of dangers, and close calls. The 3,400 trip tested his resolve again and again.. Along the way he meets a few people here and there, and Adam found everyone that he talked to was helpful and encouraging. He suffers extreme cold, dangerous rapids, starvation, hydroelectric dams and encounters wildlife in its natural habitat. The book held me spellbound and made me appreciate the vast beauty of the Canadian wilderness. In my armchair I was along for the adventure with Adam Shoalts. ( )
