This is a reprint of the classic tale of the 1930 canoe expedition from Minneapolis to Hudson Bay, written by Eric Sevareid, who was joined by Walter C. Port on the summer-long voyage. The two men relied on Cree Indians, traders and locals when they needed food, shelter and guidance. Sevareid corresponded with newspapers on this trip, which helped launch his career in journalism. The book was first published in 1935. Here, it’s been repackaged in paperback with a commemorative tin and a fold-out map of the 2,250-mile journey. — Javier Serna
