Saku, a black Cape Shore dog, is still young but is skilled and strong with a lot of exploring to do. Watching him bound around the backcountry or swimming behind Justin Barbour''s raft, you just know that he is ready to go on a very long adventure! Best of all, he carries a famous name, that of Saku Koivu, the long-ago captain of the Montreal Canadiens. Together with his owner, Justin, Saku is going to cross from Robinsons in western Newfoundland to Cape Broyle, where the province''s eastern shores meet the Atlantic Ocean! Using a satellite phone, they inform everyone how they are doing as the months speed by. What will the two friends find as they travel through dense bush, cross icy rivers, shoot rapids, and catch trout for fresh food? Travelling with Saku and Justin, young readers will also learn how to start a campfire, make a warm bed of boughs for chilly nights, and to live as friends with nature.
