Book Review: The Old Way North (David Pelly)

Canoeing.com – Ernest Oberholtzer’s 1912 canoe journey from The Pas, Manitoba to Hudson’s Bay and back to civilization via the Lake Winnipeg railhead at Gimli has long fascinated expedition paddlers … In his new book The Old Way North: Following the Oberholtzer-Magee Expedition David Pelly successfully puts the Oberholtzer-Magee trip into a historical, cultural, and geographical context. Pelly, a far northern paddler himself and the author of Thelon: A River Sanctuary and Sacred Hunt: A Portrait of the Relationship Between Seals and Inuit, brings the 1912 trip into a sharper focus and deeper context than any previous work.
