Kate Harris is a writer with a knack for getting lost. Her words have been featured in The Walrus, Canadian Geographic, and The Georgia Review, among other publications, and cited in Best American Essays and Best American Travel Writing. A Rhodes and Morehead-Cain scholar, she was named one of Canada’s top modern-day explorers and in 2012 won the Ellen Meloy Desert Writers Award. Her journeys edging the limits of nations, science, and sanity have taken her to all seven continents, often by ski or bike. She's been profiled in Guernica, The Globe and Mail, VOGUE Germany, and the short film The Art of Wild. When she isn't wandering the world, she lives off-grid in a log cabin in Atlin, British Columbia. Her first book is the national bestseller Lands of Lost Borders.
