In this first leg of his epic journey, Simon travels from the frozen beauty of Alaska down through Canada to Vancouver and the border with the United States. Landing on a huge glacier in Alaska's Denali National Park, Simon witnesses first-hand the brutal impact of global climate change in the remote north of the planet - ice is receding here at an alarming rate. Hunting caribou with native Americans, Simon also hears both sides of the debate about President Trump's plans to open the Arctic National Wilderness Reserve to oil drilling. Canada has a much greener reputation than its powerful neighbour, as Simon learns in the Yukon while sharing a bizarre cocktail containing a frozen human toe with an off-grid character called Caveman Bill. But Canada has many of its own problems: in the wealthy hipster paradise of Vancouver Simon meets the people saving lives in the midst of a brutal opioid addiction crisis that has cost so many lives across the North American continent. Author and broadcaster Simon Reeve is one of the BBC's most popular presenters and this series marks his biggest project yet. Meeting engaging and colourful characters along the way, Simon's adventure uncovers a side to the Americas rarely seen, highlighting serious social and political issues alongside the epic landscapes and sheer fun of an endlessly fascinating part of the world.
