Walking the Big Wild is the story of Karsten Heuer's
extraordinary 18-month journey of hiking, skiing, and
paddling across 2100 miles of mountains, forests, and
rivers from Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming to the
Canadian Yukon. Accompanied by occasional human
companions and a remarkable border collie named Webster,
Heuer encountered immense challenges: storms, avalanches,
floods, and grizzlies. At the end of the journey, Heuer
proved that there is nearly continuous wilderness that
can support wildlife along the length of the Rockies-and
is salvageable if the right decisions are made now.
Karsten Heuer has worked as a wildlife biologist and park
warden in Banff National Park in the Rockies, in Inuvik
in Canada's far north, and in the Madikwe Game Reserve in
South Africa.
