Canoe country ; & Snowshoe country
Jaques, Florence Page
Adult Nonfiction F612.B73 J36 1999

Comments  Summary

Summary: "A well-traveled New York sophisticate, Florence Page Jaques fell in love with northern Minnesota during her first trips to the region, and recounted those early travels in Canoe Country and Snowshoe Country. She writes of the excitement of traveling by foot, canoe, snowshoe, and dogsled. Weeks of solitude canoeing through the Boundary Waters are interrupted by encounters with the denizens of the north country: Native Americans preserving the vestiges of traditional culture, colorful and sometimes eccentric lumberjacks and trappers, and hard-working homesteaders."--BOOK JACKET. "Her vivid stories are matched by her husband's drawings: Francis Lee Jaques captures the delicate power of Minnesota's seasons, from the cascading falls of summer to the frozen lakes of winter."--BOOK JACKET.
