In 1930, two novice paddlers - Eric Sevareid and Walter C. Port - launched a secondhand 18-foot canvas canoe from 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 advice, the ragged, hungry adventurers arrived in York Factory on Hudson Bay - with winter freeze-up on their heels. Download and start listening now!

    " A very good book, describing an adventure that wouldn't happen today. Simple, direct style that is appropriate for a book written by a teenager/young adult. Seemed not to appreciate the wilderness as much as a 21st century traveler might. Also didn't recognize nor appreciate the Cree culture. The author did, however, appreciate the help from several Cree paddlers. "

    " The definitive canoe trip book. Two ambitious kids paddle from Minneapolis to Hudson bay through 1930s Minnesota and Canada. Great read, especially if you've ever done or dreamed about a trip like this. "
