Thlewiaza-Seal Rivers

Challenge of the Ice

by Fred Nelson

About The Book

This book is about a canoeing adventure in the far north wilderness of Canada and tells readers how the adventure was planned and executed. It describes how the canoeists worked their way to seventy-five miles overland from the Thlewiaza River to the Seal River and then south on Hudson Bay to Churchill in a storm. The story also tells of the many difficult portages on ice and snow, of running extreme rapids on near freezing water, waterfalls, encounters with bears, and cold rainy days mixed with warm beautiful days. You can also enjoy the adventure, but in the warmth and comfort of your home.

About The Author

The author was born and raised in the state of New York. After graduating from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, he was directed to report for duty at Wright Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton, Ohio. There, he joined the Beavercreek Junior Chamber of Commerce and was asked to pose in a canoe for publicity pictures that the local newspaper would use to announce an upcoming canoe race on the Little Miami River near Dayton. Then, for the first time in a canoe, he paddled down the river for 12 miles and tipped over 3 times. This began his love of canoeing, which would last a lifetime. He participated in a total of 19 canoe trips in the wilderness of Northern Canada. The trips ranged from 11 to 36 days and totaled about 4,500 miles. Most of the trips ended at either the Arctic Ocean or Hudson Bay.
