Canoeing with the Cree
|Publisher||The MacMillan Company|
Canoeing with the Cree is a 1935 book by Eric Sevareid recounting a canoe trip by Sevareid and his friend, Walter Port.
The complete route took them up the Minnesota River and its tributary, the Little Minnesota River to Browns Valley, Minnesota. Sevareid and Port portaged to Lake Traverse and descended the Bois des Sioux River to the Red River of the North, which led to Lake Winnipeg, finally paddling down the Nelson River, Gods River, and Hayes River to Hudson Bay.
Canoeing with the Cree served as the crucial literary inspiration for Minnesota aviation pioneer Scott D. Anderson's 1990 book, Distant Fires, where Anderson and a friend retraced the journey of Sevareid and Port from Duluth to York Factory. The book went on to gain statewide success and an American Library Association award.
