    “I just picked up the movie at Mountain Equipment Coop in Edmonton. I fell in love with Kayaking last year. My first trip was Maligne Lake in Jasper National Park. Going to do the Bowron Circuit. This documentary is outstanding. This family is incredible. Thank you for sharing this experience. What a modern day inspiration! ” — RobRheaume, 19 Feb 2012

    “I had the priviledge of meeting Karsten on the Skyline Trail in Jasper a few years ago and got to share a picnic table, a couple of meals and good conversation. As a result, I've been enjoying the books and films that continually speak of the wonder, the joy, the mystery of creation and our responsibility to care... It's also great to see another family sharing adventures together. Keep it up!! ” — canoeguy, 28 Aug 2010
