Unrelenting winds, carnivorous polar bears, snake nests, sweltering heat, and constant hunger. Paddling from Minneapolis to Hudson Bay, following the 2,000-mile route made famous by Eric Sevareid in his 1935 class Canoeing with the Cree, Warren and Ann Raiho faced unexpected trials, some harrowing, some simply odd. Warren will present on her experiences and the book she wrote detailing these accounts and much more.
