Canoeing Across Canada

If you liked the post about the Peace Country cross-country paddlers, you might want to check out the book written by a member of the crew.  Jon P. van Tamelen wrote Canada by Canoe: Hudson Hope, British Columbia, to Montreal, Quebec, 5200 miles by canoe.  It was published in 1974.  It is difficult to find today but still possible to buy.

It seems van Tamelen started another book called Wild Goose to the Arctic but perhaps never published it.  If you have any information about this author and his books, we would love to hear from you.  Please email
