Mr. Hubbard's diary confirms what we already know from the first book, the party should have turned back way before they actually did, and that decision alone, basically doomed them, although there were other poor decisions. On the way back, the party reaches a point where they can stick to an unknown river and their canoe, or abandon their canoe and retrace their steps through the Susan River Valley which had not been kind to them on the way into the interior. Wallace and Elson (according to Wallace) wanted to keep the canoe and continue down the river.

In 1903 Hubbard's husband, Leonidas, starved to death on his cartographic and ethnographic expedition to Labrador. Hubbard decided to complete her husband's work, becoming a skilled explorer and cartographer in her own right. She set out in July 1905 and with the help of George Elson, a Métis guide who had been employed by her husband on the original trip, and three other guides completed her expedition in record time with significant results, including completing the first accurate map of the Labrador river system, thus correcting the earlier map that had led to her husband's death. Her original photographs and the map are reproduced in this volume.

I purchased this for a family member who is a direct descendant of Mina Hubbard. this book is fascinating and she loved it.

the book was very informative for anyone desiring to know more about the history and geography of the region, however, it did tend to get a bit tedious and bogged down at times.

I was hoping to see some pictures not seen in other books (such as Great Heart: The History of a Labrador Adventure; Lure of the Labrador Wild) of Labrador expeditions, but I was disappointed - there isn't any picture in this book. The publisher just did not include any pictures that Mrs. Mina Benson Hubbard had taken in her expedition. Besides, the print is very small.

not my kind of book. it took too long to get started. maybe later. i h ve nothing more to say.

This is a great book. A woman explorer in 1903. One who writes well. A good (true) story, with a race down the river, an appreciation of her guides not usual in 1903, and love of the country. "What do flies matter when you are free?" Essential reading for any canoeist. The book has been rediscovered-- just look at the number of reprints available (great story, public domain).

So read it! But get some other edition. What's that horsewoman doing on the cover? Mrs. Hubbard was in a canoe, and a horse could not get anywhere in Labrador terrain. There weren't any buildings either. Just the bush. Publisher/artist clearly didn't know a thing about the book. The cover looks like a fit for some dreadful fantasy/romance/fairy tale.

Also read Davidson and Rugge's Great Heart-- which fills out the story from Mina's diaries, her guide's....
