    I live in Northeast Iowa and have been camping and canoeing most of my life. Over the last few years, I have been getting more interested in primitive methods and voyageur history.

    My favorite desitination is the Boundary Waters/Quetico region.

    Hello and welcome from Texas. I've got a book called The Voyageur by Grace Lee Nute and written in 1931. They were fascinating people.
