    One thought on “The Lure of the Labrador Wild”

    1. Opening: The Jug, as Thomas Angus often remarked, was as snug and handy a place to live as ever a man could wish. Ten miles up the Bay was the trading post of the Hudson’s Bay Company, and at Wolf Bight, twelve miles directly across the Bay from the Jug, the trading post of Trowbridge & Gray, and then only five miles to the eastward, at Break Cove, lived Doctor Joetenberg/ebooks/42396

    2. This was a very well-written and engrossing account of determination and the will to survive in the northern Canadian wilderness. Written in 1905, the adventure is an enjoyable and lighthearted to read in the beginning, and turns gripping right around the middle of the chronicle as the weather slowly turns Wallace, Hubbard, and Elson's expedition into a race against the oncoming snow and impending starvation.Wallace's writing style is very easy to follow, and he had a keen eye for small details, [...]

    3. This is the classic tale of the Hubbard/Wallace/Elson expedition to find Lake Michikamau. Leonidas Hubbard, the leader of the expedition, had an amazingly romantic notion of exploration, and never really came to grips with the realities. He took a turn up the wrong river, and carried on, ultimately starving to death. Dillon Wallace, the author, made it out alive. He co-wrote this with a professional writer. It's an excellent read, and although Wallace seems to canonize Hubbard, if you read it cl [...]

    4. I read this book in high school, more than 15 years ago. Last year, I decided to take it out as an audio book, and actually, I took it to the cabin during a weekend I spend there with my husband. During the cold evenings when we stayed inside, we laid back on the sofa in front of the fire and listened to the story of Wallace and Hubbard, and their adventure into the isolation of the Labrador Wild. The story is so very interesting, and I enjoyed it even more so, now that I am older. A tragic tale [...]

    5. This is an engrossing diary of an expedition into the interior of Labrador at the turn of the last century. Two Victorian gentlemen who bit off far more than they could chew. While the language is a bit stilted (Victorian ?) the account of their slow starvation as summer turns to winter and the physical challenges of the journey make it a unique and interesting read.I downloaded this from Project Gutenberg and read on my smartphone.

    6. Very interesting true adventure -- It's written by one of the adventurers and is full of tragedy, excitement and all the things that make such books good reads. The writing is lacking here and there, but you have to consider when it was written and the fact that the author was new to writing. If you've ever been to Labrador, you'll truly appreciate this story.

    7. Outstanding account of a summer hiking adventure gone wrong that becomes a survival ordeal. Extremely engrossing and well-written, a simply extraordinary account of exploring a very unexplorable part of the world.

    8. Great book! Fascinating tale and very moving. Easy to read considering it was written in 1905 by someone who wasn't a writer. I've been reading archived issues of Outing magazine for additional related stories. Good stuff.

    9. Another totally enthralling account of exploring some place where no one with any sense would want to go - a litany of bad decisions from start to finish, beginning with the decision to go in the first place.

    10. We had to read this book in school. Everyone complained about it except for me! I thought it was amazing and I recently bought a copy just to have it on my shelf.

    11. I read this book in 2006 and loved it. A true story of survival and friendship. Containg one of my personal heros, george.
