For over 35 years, Robert Perkins has canoed the tundra wilderness of one particular river: The Great Fish River in Canada, north of Yellowknife. He travels alone. He knows the natural history and the human history and the environmental concerns of this northern watershed that flows for 560 unimpeded miles to the arctic ocean.
For 25 years he produced PBS specials for David Fanning, creator of Frontline, and John Willis at Channel 4 in England. Two of his documentaries, Into the Great Solitude, and Talking to Angels were filmed in the arctic on this river.
