Nicolas Vanier, explorer of the Far North, sets off with his family on a year-long treck through northern Canada on the trail of Jack London, from British Columbia to Dawson, Alaska.

However, extraordinary landscapes have more power and prove that enormous tracts of land are still preserved. (...) I've always respected the rhythm of the dogs or horses on my journeys. This time, it was a child's rhythm. Life isn't easy at minus 40° C but it's not tougher than in the polluted atmosphere of August in Paris. We weren't aiming (...) to accomplish a world first.
