Overview
In 1930 two novice paddlers--Eric Sevareid and Walter C. Port--launched a secondhand eighteen-foot canvas canoe into the Minnesota River at Fort Snelling for an ambitious summer-long journey from Minneapolis to Hudson Bay. First published in 1935, Canoeing with the Cree is Sevareid's classic account of this youthful odyssey to a vast and remote land, that has inspired generations of canoeists, wilderness enthusiasts and armchair adventurers.

In our era of GPS, cell phones, power bars, and bug spray, the young men's account is all the more remarkable and nostalgic. Relive their quintessential adventure with this limited-edition book and map set. It includes a newly designed book, a handsome multipurpose collector's tin, and a colorful art quality map annotated by Ann Raiho, who with Natalie Warren were the first women to replicate Sevareid and Port's route.

Just in time for the holidays, this limited-edition classic is the perfect gift for nature lovers and outdoor adventurers.

The newspaper stories that Eric Sevareid wrote on this trip launched his distinguished journalism career, which included more than a decade as a television correspondent and commentator on the CBS Evening News.
