Wolf Trek: Alone in the Woods
Charged by bison, surrounded by wolves, nose-to-nose with bears...what could drive a man with a broken arm to spend three bug-infested weeks hiking a non-existent trail through subarctic Wood Buffalo National Park? This is the risky true story of his arm-smashed-up buffalo walk in search of wildlife and wisdom.

"Absolutely loved Wolf trek. Extremely simple staging coupled with an engaging storyteller and a story that is truly worth telling make this one of my favorite shows ve seen all fringe.
