[edit] Information

A journey to the ancient Inca's sacred Andean peaks, wayfinders in Polynesia, a spiritual odyssey in the Himalayas of Nepal and vanishing ice's impact on Inuit life in the Arctic are all explored by Canada's only National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Wade Davis in the four-part documentary series "Light at The Edge of The World"

[edit] Sacred Geography

In Peru the descendants of the Inca believe that the land is alive. As long as you live in the shadow of a mountain it will direct your destiny. In Peru Wade Davis takes a journey of the spirit, a pilgrimage to the sacred heart of the Andes.

[edit] The Wayfinders

Ancient Polynesians settled 10 million square miles of the Pacific by navigating sailing canoes from island to island. But their tremendous story was almost lost. Can a single sailing canoe from Hawaii restore the pride of the Polynesian culture after years and years decay and denial?

[edit] The Science of the Mind

Buddhism asks the fundamental questions: what is life and what is the point of existence? Wade Davis goes on an anthropological and spiritual path into the Himalayas of Nepal to learn the deepest lesson of Buddhist practice.

[edit] Hunters of the Northern Ice

The Inuit Canada and Greenland have survived for thousands of years in the harshest climate on earth. But will global warming bring an end to the Arctic hunt and the Inuit way of life?
