Time and Tides
One Woman's Inward Journey and Outward Adventure
by Carol A. Heppenstall

It began with the idea of north... Twenty-five years later the author leads us on her odyssey into the Arctic wilderness, the rainforests of the west coast and further afield. From the totems of Haida Gwaii to the flickering light of a kudluk in a northern igloo she summons a surreal landscape in some of the world's most remote destinations. This story begins and ends with art, that life enriching experience that opens the door to peoples, places and things that will astound you!

Carol was born in Winnipeg, Canada and graduated from St. Mary's Academy and the St. Boniface School of Nursing. She moved with her husband to Philadelphia where she raised her children, Mark and Darcy while pursuing an Art History degree. Opening an Inuit and Northwest Coast Gallery in Philadelphia, she enjoyed the company of Canadian Native artists and delighted in sharing their work with a new audience. Upon receiving her Masters in Museum Education, she lectured extensively, serving on the Board of Trustees for the Penn Museum and joining the faculty of the University of the Arts in their Professional Institute for Educators. In 1993 she received a call from Adventure Canada, an ecotour company, and the rest, as they say, is history.
