Although James loves books and the heady smell of libraries and archives, he is quick to tell people that there is another learning venue that has been as influential as any formal schooling on his point of view.  Adventure.  From his early days on the mighty Speed River to his most recent trips to the Antarctic or to Algonquin Park on snowshoes, or circling the midnight sun, James lives to pack up his kit and get out on the road less travelled.  Work as a biologist, geographer, writer, teacher, guide and expedition leader have taken him to the back country across Canada and around the world but he often travels solo for no other reason than to reconnect with the people and places in the Great Beyond to find there, as the Stan Rogers’ song goes, “the road back home again.”
