Flanker Press Staff Pick
Peter Hanes - Digital and Social Media Coordinator
by Justin Barbour
As someone who loves the outdoors, I was quite excited when this project landed at Flanker. I was already familiar with Justin’s videos of his travels on youtube, the preparation and planning that goes into his trips, the gear he takes, the challenges he faces, and best of all his travel companion Saku. This book really makes you feel like you’re right there with Justin and Saku as they travel from Robinson’s on the west coast of the island, to Cape Broyle on the east, facing rough terrain, cold weather, and isolation along the way, but ultimately being rewarded with an incredible experience and seeing parts of our province that are rarely touched by humans (or canines). Highly recommend this book, and also Justin’s YouTube channel The Newfoundland Explorer.
