From Norway to Newfoundland.

Writer and adventurer Lawrence Millman. His new book, "Last Places," recounts Millman's journey along the old Viking route across the North Atlantic from Norway to Newfoundland. He traveled as primitively as possible, fought off dive-bombing skuas (pterodactyl-like birds with five-foot wingspans), stayed with an Eskimo hermit endowed with supernatural powers, and camped in some of the world's most pristine spots. His writing has been compared to Bruce Chatwin and Edward Hoagland.
