ADAM SHOALTS, called “Canada’s Indiana Jones” by the Toronto Star, has proven that the age of exploration is far from over. His expeditions into Canada’s wilderness have generated new geographic knowledge and garnered international headlines. Focusing on the vast Hudson Bay Lowlands, this area, one and a half times larger than the United Kingdom, remains partly unexplored to this day. Shoalts is currently completing a Ph.D. at McMaster University.
