Many listeners will remember Sevareid for his prestigious career as a CBS journalist. John Farrell recounts the young Sevareid's 2,250-mile canoe trip from Minnesota to Hudson Bay with buddy Walter Port. Farrell’s understated performance lets the wildness and spirit of this grand tale emerge. An amazing journey of bold youth, the work blends memoir, documentary, and adventure. Farrell makes us feel the author’s nostalgia as he looks back at his youth with a glimmer in his eye and wonder that he made it through alive. There’s no need to embellish the adventure and hardship of the story—whether recounting being lost in the wilderness; facing freeze-in, rapids, or nay-sayers; or at last entering a pristine lake seen by few human eyes. A true paddler's tale. F.G. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2008]
