The legendary Missinaibi River runs north from Lake Superior to the arctic waters of James Bay. Like many northern rivers, the Missinaibi appeals to seasoned paddlers for the white-knuckle exhilaration of navigating miles of challenging rapids. Other routes along the Michipicoten-Missinabi river corridor offer quieter options for paddlers at any level of experience and ability.
Each trip is a breathtaking expedition through unforgettable wilderness settings.
Hap Wilson is Canada's best-known canoeist and expedition author, with over 30 years experience. His hand-drawn maps and illustrations are featured in Voyages: Canada's Heritage Rivers, which won the Natural Resources of America Award for Best Environmental Book.
Compiled by Hap Wilson, an outdoor writer who has more than thirty years of experience as a wilderness guide... personally documented maps... far more information than a volume size might lead the reader to expect.
Engaging and idiosyncratic... the clear pen-and-ink maps are full of details... some photographers dream of wild places and seek the way. I would recommend these books to them.
Detailed information... Hap Wilson has personally explored the rivers.
Sound advice on important topics... Anyone planning a canoe trip to the areas covered by Wilson will benefit greatly by reading these guidebooks, but even canoeing enthusiasts not planning on travelling to these regions by canoe will enjoy just reading them.
Perhaps the best aspect of this fine book is the author's meticulous attention to detail and the accuracy of his research.
I love his writing because he speaks to my soul... about canoeing and the magnificent outdoors we seldom pay attention to.
