Franklin, Oops, Mud & Cupcake is an engaging account of four canoe trips in northern Canada written by outdoor author and adventurer Michael D. Pitt. Michael's intimate writing style brings you "into the canoe" as he and his wife Kathleen discover the strength, challenges and self-reliance that come from absolute isolation. "Travel four rivers, camp 100 nights, and paddle almost 2000 kilometres. In a friendly and inviting style, Michael Pitt shares his daily experiences and amusing anecdotes, revealing the freedom and wilderness that has defined his life." - Brian Johnston, Arctic paddler and author of"On Top of a Boulder: Notes from Tyrrell's Cairn" "Michael Pitt's narratives of four Arctic and sub-Arctic canoe trips are as much inner as outward journeys in the search for meaning to life."- Carey Robson, master instructor, Recreational Canoeing Association of BC "Michael's writing is engaging and immensely enjoyable... a valuable guidebook to these awesome rivers. It is personal, honest, wise, and even a bit cheeky - a joy to read." - Dan Burnett, lifelong tripper of Canadian wilderness rivers "A real pleasure to follow Michael Pitt down four spectacular northern wilderness rivers. The book prompts the reader to be who you are no matter the source of the challenge!" - Tony Shaw, master instructor and perennial wilderness paddler

Canada's Yukon is one the world's last great wildernesses, where bears, moose and caribou roam. It's a place where hikers, paddlers, skiers and mushers can travel for days without seeing another human soul, where the northern lights dance green and red across starry skies, and where glaciers tumble, mountain peaks soar, and tundra shrubs scream scarlet as summer turns to fall. Bradt's Yukon is the only guidebook dedicated to this natural and historical wonderland. Offering practical advice on everything from where to pan for gold to how to avoid being eaten by a bear, alongside quirky anecdotes (such as the story behind the 'sourtoe cocktail' - a shot of whisky garnished with a severed human toe), it's the perfect companion for highway drivers, cruise-ship passengers, and outdoors enthusiasts alike.

Linked to a television series of eight one-hour programmes about European nature and wildlife, this book explores the richness and beauty of the differing European landscapes. These vary enormously, from the arid southern lands to the cold northern wastes, from the high peaks to the grasslands, and from the deserted wilderness to the urban jungle. The book examines the plants and animals that coexist in each of these terrains, such as the wolf in Greece and Spain, polar bears in Norway and Sweden, the lynx and the tiger in Poland and Russia, and the brown deer in Bulgaria and Romania.
