We talk about the journals and photographs of a turn of the twentieth century outdoor adventurist and his friends. They explored the northwoods of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan and Canada and left a legacy of what the land and its people were like at that point in history.

Have you inherited journals that helped you get to know your family better? Do you have fond memories of family canoe adventures? We’d like to hear from you. Join the conversation by calling 800-642-1234 or send an email to
