Synopsis: In 1965 well known mountaineer and reporter Walter Bonatti, accomplished a solo expedition by canoe down the Yukon and Porcupine rivers for Epoca (Italian Magazine). Visiting the gold rush sites, he moved from the Chilkoot Pass up north to the Klondike. He experienced the amazing Yukon ice breaks in Dawson City, explored the Bonanza and El Dorado Creeks, and prepared himself for the long canoe trip. “The Yukon Blues” is Igor D’India’s attempt to recreate this journey and to document what has changed since then, with the fresh view of a young explorer.
