In 2010, bestselling author Kathleen Winter took a journey across the legendary Northwest Passage. From Greenland to Baffin Island and all along this arctic passage, Winter witnesses the new mathematics of the melting North - where polar bears mate with grizzlies, creating a new hybrid species; where the earth is on the cusp of yielding so much buried treasure that five nations stand poised to claim sovereignty of the land; and where the local Inuit population struggles to navigate the tension between taking their part in the new global economy and defending their traditional way of life. In breathtaking prose charged with vivid descriptions of the land and its people, Kathleen Winter's Boundless is a haunting and powerful story: a homage to the ever-evolving and magnetic power of the North.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Absorbing." -- Michael Kerr * Daily Telegraph *
"A lively interactive account [of] the native culture of Greenland, the human pathos of small mementoes of failed polar expeditions and the larger, legendary Arctic landscape in meltdown." * The Times *
"[Winter's] keen novelist's eye brings immediacy and vibrancy... An unusual and original take on the travel memoir, by the end there is a real sense of an epic journey having been taken, by both the writer and the reader." * Observer *
"Compulsively readable... it both heightens life and plumbs its deepest mysteries, laying bare the beauty of both the world and the soul." * Globe and Mail *
"Ultimately, the journey that Kathleen Winter takes on a last-minute whim is transformative. Her precise and vivid prose allows the reader to share in that transformation. For the many readers who admired Annabel and want to get to know its author better, Boundless is a tremendous gift." * Quill & Quire *
