This Water Goes North

Dennis Weidemann came to the Cresco Public Library to talk about his book, This Water Goes North.  He and three other Midwestern farm boys loaded two beat-up canoes and set off on a 1,400 mile voyage to the fabled York Factory outpost on Hudson Bay.  Here are pictures from this presentation.
