About

*Justin Allen and his dog team about to leave the start line in Churchill, MB - Jan 22nd 2018

In the middle of winter, January 2018, Justin Allen and his team of 12 dogs left on a 3000+km dog sled expedition through Canada's beautiful north and northern communities, leaving from Churchill, Manitoba to end in Saint John, New Brunswick.

Justin, Danielle, Philip and Caleb along with Mouse, Howler, Alpine, Tamarack, Juniper, Willow, J.T., Goldie, Ash, Acer, Bella and Sequoia, with the help of communities all across northern Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec and more, set out to get Justin and his dogs home to start a new life and raise awareness to the fact that sled dogs can be happy, healthy and absolutely in love with the life they lead.

Along the way Caleb was able to document the journey by camera and pen.

This book is his photo journalistic view of this incredible expedition. 

Feel like you were a part of this historic and iconic journey too, without the freezing cold nights and harsh winter days! 96 Pages of beautiful photographs of the dogs, the trip, trials, tribulations and amazing landscapes along the way.

See below for just a few of the many photos included.

As it stands we are already in discussion with the print house for the final products and have been going back and forth with test images. Production costs have been taken into account for the numbers listed and there should be no need for extra money once funded to get to a final product.

We wish shipping costs could be lower but there is no way around it, we apologize for the large amounts for some places and wish there was something we could do but postal prices are what they are! If you find your country isn't listed due to these prices but still wish to purchase a copy you can contact us directly from our website - www.nanukoperations.com

Risks and challenges

As the trip is still ongoing, the risk is that something happens prior to the end of the trip that would result in the loss of all of my images before being able to send them to the print house.

OR

That the expedition is cut short for a reason outside of my control (i.e. for the health and well being of the team or dogs). In which case I would still create a book, it just would not include whatever leg of the journey was left. It would still be a true representation of what has happened on this trip.

As of now we have already completed a serious expedition in it's own right. The hardest sections are done and once we get into Quebec it should ease up a bit.

I am already in discussion with the print house and we are going back and forth with samples for printing the books and calendars.

Cost of production has been taken into account with the pricing, so as long as we are funded to our goal there should be no need for more money down the line to get to a final product.

Shipping prices are a challenge we wish we could change but unfortunately they are what they are.
