Far Distant Echo: A Journey By Canoe from Lake Superior to Hudson Bay By Fred Marks & Jay Timmerman
eBook (ePub): $8.99
Outdoorsmen and armchair travelers will encounter history, ravenous insects, trail menus, hungry bears, and the quiet joys of endurance in this intriguing recounting of a 2008 canoe expedition. Six... More > men began a 1,300-mile canoe trip along a traditional fur-trading route. During the two-and-a-half-month expedition, four of them dropped out. One of the two who saw it through (Marks) turned 62 on the trail, and the satisfaction of the authors at completing the trek is expressed in vibrant if understated language: “Both of our hearts were racing. We had made it.” The highly detailed account of planning the trip underscores the atmosphere of authenticity, and problems encountered along the way ring true. This is no journal of transcendental rapture; the emphasis is on the incidental and, often, on mishaps. Moments of serendipity, too, are presented keenly. Publishers Weekly 07/09/2012< Less

I Walk My Hill By Clark P. Lovrien
Paperback: $14.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
I Walk My Hill is a family story spanning five generations. Part One begins with Samuel Lovering setting out to live on his own at age 17, just before the Revolutionary War. Using real family... More > genealogy and a variety of historical research on the life and times of our ancestors through the generations, the author brings the past to life once more with this semi-fictional re-telling, at once both historically interesting and emotionally engaging. This segment of the story shows depictions of New England factory life (Mill Girls), the hunting and fur trade, farm life in Vermont and several key battles of the American Revolution. Natural hardships are overcome, unexpected losses are endured and the survivors are left putting the pieces together, looking for a reason to carry on. Though based on a real family descending from the "Lovering" namesake, this could very well be any American family and its founding descendants. Perhaps best of all, it reminds us that each family history is really an ongoing love story.< Less
THE WESTERN CREE (Pakisimotan Wi Iniwak) Louis Joseph Piche (Chief Pesew) The Founding of a Dynasty By Joachim Fromhold
Paperback: $38.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
While most Canadians have heard of the Indian Chiefs Poundmaker, Big Bear and perhaps even Broken Arm (MASKI PITON), Chief PESEW has remained virutally unkown. He is not mentioned in the popular or... More > academic history of the Canadian west or in the Indian history of the west. In fact, western development owes a large debt to Chief PESEW - Louis Joseph Piche. Coming west as a young Voyageur with Peter Pond, Piche eventually rose to become the Head Chief of the Cree/Nakoda alliance in the west, and their allied tribes. His sway reached from Winnipeg to the Pacific, and from Lesser Slave Lake to Wyoming. It is Piche and his followers who "settled" the west, and it is thanks to him that the west was settled peacefully for those who followed. Piche had a large family, and most of the Western Cree chiefs today can trace descent to him. 468 pages.< Less
