Jim Baird The Adventurer – Canoeing & Expedition Survival in the North


I’m the winner of ALONE Season 4 on History Channel. Deep in the last frontiers of the Canadian North and Alaska, I travel hundreds of miles by canoe or on foot, surviving, and camping on tundra, and in the boreal forest. On my trips I capture the dangers, hardships, fun, and beauty, of living within the rhythms of nature. And I share what I learn in the wilderness. Join me on my adventures and subscribe to my channel!
