Arctic Son Fulfilling the Dream

Episode 1 of 1

Arctic Son: Fulling the Dream is a remarkable story of a family’s solo journey into America’s last great wilderness. Alone for more than a year, the four built a cabin and hunted for food to carry them through winter. The following summer they embarked on a three-week canoe voyage back to civilization. During their fifteen months alone they candidly filmed their lives and later produced this documentary, companion to Jean Aspen's book. Beautiful, honest, and moving, this is a family adventure to share with those you love. For more on their lives, see
