    "Nahanni", 1962 NFB film

    This short film (18 mins) focuses on the legend of a lost gold mine and a river in the Northwest Territories that lured men to their doom. Albert Faille, an aging prospector, set out time and again to find hidden gold. His route took him through the wild and awesome land particularly suited to the mood of this Canadian odyssey.

    Wow! Very cool Rob.

    No PFDs or Gore Tex in those days. I got a kick out of his depth sounder.

    Thanks for posting.
