The Last Patrol

👤Keith Billington 🕔Dec 03, 2013

In 1970, Keith Billington, along with ten other men, embarked on the nearly 800 km trip by dog team, from Fort MacPherson to Dawson City. This was a commemorative journey of the famous “lost patrol”—in 1910, a crew of Royal Northwest Mounted Police attempted the same trip, but with a much more tragic outcome.

Author Keith Billington (House Calls by Dog Sled; Tse-loh-ne: The People at the End of the Rocks) chronicles these incredible journeys in his new book, The Last Patrol.
