Meet Explorers and National Geographic's 2014 Adventurers of the Year Amy and Dave Freeman, Authors of A Year in the Wilderness, and hear their story and sign the petition canoe they are towing 1,750 miles by bicycle to Washington DC to protect our nation's most popular Wilderness.
Crossing nine states, Amy and Dave Freeman are biking from Ely, Minnesota, to Washington D.C. this spring to promote their new book, A Year in the Wilderness, and continue their efforts to protect the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, one of our country’s most precious and expansive Wilderness areas.
With collaborative support from the Campaign to Save the Boundary Waters and Milkweed Editions, the Freemans will take their story, as told in their recent book A Year in the Wilderness (Milkweed Editions) to new audiences as they pedal to the nation's capital. The Freemans will tow a canoe behind their bikes, which will serve as a reminder of the wilderness they have pledged to protect. The canoe is also a petition for citizens to sign to show support for protecting the Boundary Waters from proposed sulfide-ore copper mining.
