Description

  • Used Book in Good Condition
  • In 1930 two novice paddlers—Eric Sevareid and Walter C. Port—launched a secondhand 18-foot canvas canoe into the
    Minnesota River at Fort Snelling for an ambitious summer-long journey from Minneapolis to Hudson Bay. Without benefit of
    radio, motor, or good maps, the teenagers made their way over 2,250 miles of rivers, lakes, and difficult portages.
    Nearly four months later, after shooting hundreds of sets of rapids and surviving exceedingly bad conditions and even
    worse advice, the ragged, hungry adventurers arrived in York Factory on Hudson Bay—with winter freeze-up on their heels.
    First published in 1935, Canoeing with the Cree is Sevareid's classic account of this youthful odyssey.

    Praise for Canoeing with the Cree

    "Canoeing with the Cree is an all-time favorite of mine." —Ann Bancroft, Arctic explorer and co-author of No Horizon Is
    So Far

    "Two high school graduates make an amazing journey . . . showing indomitable courage that carried them through to their
    destination. Humor and a spirit of adventure made a grand, good time of it, in spite of storms, rapids, long portages
    and silent wildernesses." —Library Journal
