Rate this:
In the dead of winter, 1908, Dr. Wilfred Grenfell set out on a medical mission from his hospital headquarters at St. Anthony to save the life of a young boy.

Against the advice of local residents, he ventured across the ice by dogsled, ill-prepared for the treacherous northern elements.

While he was crossing Hare Bay, the ice opened up and started drifting, stranding the doctor and his sled dogs.

This is the story of Dr. Grenfell's harrowing adventure on the deadly Arctic ice.
