About This Item

N.p. [Chicago?], 1933. First edition, privately printed. Illustrated with 2 photographs. 24 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Original printed wrappers gathered with cord. Slight wrapper wear, internally fine, with bookplate of Col. Henry A. Siegel. First edition, privately printed. Illustrated with 2 photographs. 24 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Unrecorded. Inscribed on front flyleaf "Merry Christmas from Victor, 1934."
Victor Elting and his friend McPherson left Chicago July 29, 1933 and arrived at a station in Northern Canada called Ombabika in the Thunder Bay District on the 31st. They spent three weeks camping, canoeing, and fishing for trout, and the narrative records places they fished and people they met. Elting ends his work with these words: "As we travelled back to Toronto we talked it all over. We had travelled more than three hundred miles in the wilderness and had visited an old civilization. We had emerged with a better sense of values and a better philosophy of life. We were in bounding health. We had taken certain physical risks but we had rejoiced in them. If we had taken counsel of our fears of accident or sickness we would have stayed at home, and we would have missed a great adventure." Not in Bruns or Heller. Not in OCLC
