NORTHWEST TERRITORIES AND YUKON | A six week manhunt for a mysterious fugitive who seemed to have superhuman abilities, set against the icy backdrop of the Arctic North in winter. The remarkable search party included RCMP, Indigenous trackers, fur trappers, and even legendary WWI pilot Captain Wop May.

Please note: this is a re-mastered and updated re-release of the first episode released in 2020.

Correction note: although original sources name Gwich'in Special Constable as Lazarus Sittichoulis, we've since learned that his name is actually Lazarous Sittichinli. Our apologies for the error.
