Just finished Bush Runner - The Adventures of Pierre-Esprit Radisson by Mark Bourrie from 2019.
P-E was abducted and adopted by Mohawks. Later he teamed up with brother in-law des Groseilliers and founded the Hudson's Bay Company (at least in his own mind). The title Bush Runner is a bit unfortunate in my opinion. I did loose track how many times he crossed the ocean blue though. Interesting look into 17th century life. Main take-away for me, the good old days were just as bad as our time.
J. Stannard Baker: "Paddling Through Depression-Era Europe - Eight Countries By Canoe & K***k". A young couple from Chicago spends the summer of 1931 on the rivers and canals of Europe including southern France, Switzerland, Austria, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, and Germany. It looks like their kids published their journals in 2020. Very enjoyable read with good insights and many nice photos.
This is a book I found in a Pa. Antique shop. It is an informational book and not the book you would take to kill time on a trip as according to the author, LL Bean, it should only take 85 minutes to read. The interesting thing is that there are five duplicate chapters in the back of the book that Bean suggests cutting out and keeping on your person when big game hunting.
Disappearances, by Howard Frank Mosher; for the third or fourth time. Like many of his books, this is set in the fictional town of Kingdom Common, in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. A lively and magical story of life in Prohibition era rural Vermont involving folklore, charismatic characters, and a bit of rum-running via birchbark canoe on Lake Memphramagog. I highly recommend his many books about Vermont characters. By the way, this story was made into a motion picture starring Kris Kristofferson in the primary role. Also an entertaining version of the story.
