Editors Note On May 26th 2008, beginning on Lake Superior, seven men embarked on an expedition by canoe to York Factory on Hudson Bay. Seventy-five days later, after paddling almost 1400 miles, negotiating one hundred rapids, and crossing eighty-five portages, two of those men completed the journey. Far Distant Echo is a story of adventure, survival, and willpower, of rising to a challenge and meeting it, and of man's endlessly complex relationship with nature. Told through the journals of the two men who made it to the end?Fred Marks, an outdoorsman who took on guiding canoe trips as his ?retirement career,? and Jay Timmerman, a student finishing his masters in history?this joint travel memoir is both highly informative and deeply personal. The reader is enlightened to not only the history of the region and the exact details of how one should prepare for a trip such as this, but is also let into the most intimate details of what it took to accomplish this canoeing trek?the ability to be pushed to the brink of limitatio and then to find the inner strength and determination to push beyond. Complete with maps, food lists, recipes, photos, and a well-selected collection of poetry and song, this book is for all those who, like its authors, have a great deal of love and respect for the great outdoors.
