Crossing the Northwest Passage remains an immense challenge despite the melting ice. Halfway through their journey, some explorers break down and fall back, leaving others exiled. One such calamity forces Richard Tegner into hitchhiking through the passage. His experience is a poignant mirror of legendary Arctic disasters that befell both Europeans and Inuit.
