On Polar Tides tells of the wilderness of the Ungava and Labrador coast. With polar bears, jagged mountains, extreme tides and violent wind squalls, this harsh territory was the domain of Arctic Peoples long before the arrival of Inuit. Woven around two kayak journeys are tales of historic exploration by ship, of plane wrecks, and a Second World War German weather station installed by a submarine crew. Observations about how the geology forms the landscape, and accounts of encounters with elderly seal hunters, meld with descriptions of the magical atmosphere where the night sky dances with green auroras and fog drifts around stately icebergs.
