We are thrilled to announce the release of the new book that will take you on a century-long journey through the history of the Northern Tier National High Adventure program of the Boy Scouts of America.

The book, “The Far Northland: A Century of Wilderness High Adventure at Northern Tier” by Dave Kenney, showcases the evolution and spirit of Northern Tier, from its humble beginnings to its current status as the oldest National High Adventure program in the organization.

Through the pages of this book, you’ll experience the stories of Scouts and leaders who have participated in Northern Tier expeditions over the years. You’ll feel their passion for the wilderness, sense of adventure, and love for the program.

“The Far Northland” is a celebration of the legacy of Northern Tier and its impact on generations of young people. It’s a tribute to the beauty and majesty of the Far Northland and the memories created by those who have paddled its lakes.

We look forward to sharing more about the book. Get ready to join us on an epic journey through one hundred years of wilderness high adventure at Northern Tier!
