Jack MacKenzie’s Wanderlust – An Ordinary Canadian’s Extraordinary Adventures


In December, 2012, I was invited to guide and ghost 92-yr-old Jack MacKenzie as he began to write his memoir.
At age 77, Jack had earned The Guinness World Record as the oldest person to ski to the North Pole. It was one of his many adventures.
40+ journals, 50+ interviews and 2000+ photos later, a 480-page work of art tells the story of “An Ordinary Canadian” I’m proud to know.
