By Truck to the North: My Arctic Adventure (Annick, $14.95)

By Truck to the North: My Arctic Adventure (Annick, $14.95), second in the Adventure Travel Series, follows self-professed transport truck junkie Andy Turnbull as he rides north in Bill the trucker’s 18-wheeler. The two men, along with TD (The Dog), head out from Vancouver loaded with everything from cauliflower to coffee. On their way north to the Beaufort Sea to sell their cargo, they’ll encounter tumbling boulders, avalanche country, wayward moose, lung-chilling temperatures and spectacular northern lights. Co-author Debora Pearson also collaborated on the first book in the series, 52 Days by Camel: My Sahara Adventure. 1-55037-550-4
