EXPEDITIONS

Lentz do the Horton: 

Arctic Canoe Expedition

John Lentz is one of the great figures of northern wilderness canoeing. In 1962 his party made the first modern descent of the Back River and he continues to paddle Canada's north four decades later. The most recent trip for this Maryland-based paddler was down the Horton River in the Northwest Territories.

ENVIRONMENT

Power Struggles in northern Quebec  

The battle to protect rivers in northern Quebec has been a stormy for more than 30 years. That fight is taking some new surprising directions as changes in the natives' view of these mega-projects have evolved. This issue is one that Ottertooth focuses on superbly and is one of the reasons we made the jump to this great site.

MAXCERPT 

Why the Heck, indeed

Paddling across Canada is not unheard of. But doing it within a fascinating framework of history brings the trip alive. Max Finkelstein writes in a lively and informative way for wilderness paddlers in his book Canoeing a Continent. This excerpt sheds some light on why we do all this hard work.
