The lost canoe : a Labrador adventure

Available Formats:


  • Author: Coady, L. W.

    Hesketh Prichard set out with a group of adventurers in the early 1900s, determined to cross Labrador. Disregarding advice, his expedition headed up a canyon and massive cliffs all with a canoe in tow. The canoe was later abandoned. The Lost Canoe is the account of the search for Prichard's canoe. Over three summers Larry Coady coaxed friends and strangers into searching for the canoe, retracing Prichard's route, verifying landforms and campsites, and mapping the trail. Original photographs and accounts of the journey, paired with Coady's own photographs and writings make for a book that appeals to a broad audience, from historians and geographers to adventurers and hikers.
