Canoeing North Into the Unknown
A Record of River Travel, 1874 to 1974Book - 1994
A book about canoeing Canada's most remote and fabled rivers, the rivers that flow north to the Arctic. The authors have amassed an unparalleled amount of information on who canoed these rivers and when. The rivers have long been highways for the aboriginal peoples, and the journals of those who followed in their wake, from early fur-traders, missionaries and surveyors to 20th century recreational canoeists, provide a rich heritage of history and adventure. The account of each river system includes a geographical description, its historical significance, and chronological records of those who have canoed its waters.
