This is the unique original Gouache painting by Neville Dear.

An atmospheric painting that depicts the arctic struggle of two men, Dr Isaac Stringer Bishop of Selkirk in the Yukon and his missionary companion C F Johnston got into serious trouble in Canada's arctic wilderness after a series of misadventures due to bad luck and worse weather; with bitter cold, snow and fog and a mountain they ended up climbing twice.

They eventually made it to the safety of a settlement but only after being forced to eat their seal-skin snow boots.

Their story was told in Look and Learn issue 357, 16th November 1968.
