CANADA'S ARCTIC JOURNAL
www.arcticjournal.ca

When this magazine launched in 1989, then publisher and editor, Jake Ootes, asked David Pelly if he would consider being a regular contributor.  Neither of them contemplated for a moment that, more than 20 years (and three editors) later, he would still be the magazine’s principal feature-writer.

The list below is a complete record of David Pelly’s contributions to Above & Beyond up to the fall  of  2006.  He has continued to write regularly for the magazine since then.  Those that are highlighted are available in PDF format for you to read on-line.
