In the North
Winging It In The North
From writer/photographer Ly Hancock, “Winging It” is a Way of life. She takes chances. talks to strangers, changes her plans on a whim. With her camera, notebook, and backpack she is a challenge in the vast, undeveloped northern wilderness. Yet for over 25 years. Lyn Hancock has managed to get to some of the most remote places on the planet by floatplane, boat, dogsled, truck, Skidoo, and various other means of transportation and to earn respect for her tales of adventure in the north.
“Lyn is a true adventurer. You’ll see that for yourself as you digest these pages. She’s also fearless – you’ll see that side of her, too. But most of all, Lyn is a navigator who has found paths into secret corners of the north. With an entertaining, highly personal writing style and superb photographs, she throws light into places most of us will never see. Without Lyn’s work, the North would be a greater mystery to many people than it already is.”
-from the Foreword by Jake Ootes, Northern Publisher and MLA, Yellowknife Center
