Overview

Join the author, Stewart Coffin, on a journey over ancient trails dating back to fur trade days as you paddle and portage your way into remote headwaters. When the trail peters out in tangles of Labrador tea, follow a compass bearing onward through unbroken wilderness to an unnamed lake. You can imagine you are exploring new country in this land of the beaver and moose. Yet you know in your heart that sometime in the dim and distant past, your lost lake has seen paddles dipped into its waters, snowshoe tracks made upon its frozen surface, or moccasin footprints pressed softly into caribou moss along its shores. As these ancient trails gradually disappear, a bit of history vanishes along with them. Herein lies the story of at least a few of them, as traveled and photographed by the author.
