In 1930 two novice paddlers launched a secondhand 18-foot canvas canoe into the Minnesota River for an ambitious summer-long journey from Minneapolis to Hudson Bay. Without benefit of radio, motor, or good maps, the teenagers made their way over 2,250 miles of rivers, lakes and difficult portages. Nearly four months later, they arrived in York Factory on Hudson Bay. This is the story of their adventure.
