Distant Fires by Scott Anderson
Book Description"The waves on Lake Superior nearly splattered them all over the cliffs, and mosquitoes almost ate them alive in the Boundary Waters. Halfway through the three-month trip, they buried their underwear. But who needs underwear when you re 22 years old and living out the adventure of a boyhood dream?" "St. Paul Pioneer Press" ""Distant Fires," a true-life adventure, describes a 1,700-mile canoe trip from Duluth to York Factory on Hudson Bay. Anderson and a companion retraced the paddles taken by Eric Sevareid and a companion almost sixty years earlier. Their trials and tribulations, plus Anderson s sense of humor, make the trip fun in book form. Pen-and-ink illustrations are by noted Minnesota wildlife artist Les Kouba." "Minneapolis Star Tribune" "Distant Fires is a voyage of discovery. Scott Anderson is an inquisitive traveler, and when he sees something that piques his interest, he stops for a chat. He also has a marvelous eye for the natural world that surrounds him in his summerlong journey. He is a natural-born writer." "Duluth News Tribune" "Some of [Anderson s] phrasing is very happy indeed: the resting place of the rivers. I wish I had written that." Eric Sevareid"
