Great Heart: The History. has been added to your Cart. This is a remarkable book. I had read Wallace's "The Lure of the Labrador", while stranded in Goose Bay in 1980, awaiting a flight into the Torngat Mtns with the late Howard Mercer. We were about to have our own intense adventure in northern Labrador, traversing the Torngats from Ryan's Bay to Hebron Fjord, and this book set a sombre tone. The story of this harsh journey stayed in my mind for years. Great Heart, written a few years after that first Torngat trip, was a great follow up to the "The Lure".

With george gone Wallace began to walk in earnest, heading west into the storm.

Published by: McGill-Queen's University Press. Take, for instance, the way the Hubbard-Wallace treks were in effect commercialized, media-driven crusades. With george gone Wallace began to walk in earnest, heading west into the storm. For a way he could follow the groove of their old trail, but it soon disappeared in the snow.

In 1903 Leonidas Hubbard was commissioned by an outdoors magazine to explore Labrador by canoe. Joined by his best friend, Dillon Wallace, and a Scots-Cree guide, George Elson, Hubbard hoped to make a name for himself as an adventurer. But plagued by poor judgment and bad luck, his party turned back and Hubbard died of starvation just thirty miles from camp. Two years later, Hubbard's widow, Mina, and Wallace returned to Labrador, leading rival expeditions to complete the original trek and fix blame for the earlier failure. Their race made headlines from New York to Nova Scotia-and it makes fascinating reading today in this widely acclaimed reconstruction of the epic saga. The authors draw on contemporary accounts and their own journeys in Labrador to evoke the intense drama to men and women pushed beyond the limits of endurance in one of the great true adventures of our century.

Why don't more people know about this book? It puts most adventure stories to shame and makes most survivors of "hardships" look like wimps. Adventurers with virtually no prior experience, wearing wool sweaters and cotton pants, carrying tons of food, canoe and portage through uncharted waters only to get hopelessly lost. Between the bugs, cold, lack of food, etc... you wonder how any could survive. The concepts of leadership, friendship and conquest are tested. After a harrowing adventure ending in death, the widow of the expedition leader races a team member into the wilds of Labrador the following year. In 1905, it was hard enough for a man to make this unprecedented trip, and unheard of for a woman to try. It is a must read for all adventure lovers!

Great Heart is an incredibly wonderful book. The true story of Labrador exploratory adventures in 1903 and 1905, its the facinating account of great difficulties, starvation, and successes in very rough country and conditions. Difficult to believe how tough the people were to make it through such adverntures, looking for "...something hidden. Go and find it. Go and look behind the ranges. Something lost behind the ranges. Lost and waiting for you. Go!" I read a borrowed copy of the book... I bought it to loan out to friends... if you like adventures in the line of Scott or Shackleton, you will love this book.

This is a great read. There is little written about this turn of the century, "last frontier" of North America where even today natives will tell you that you can't get there from here. The grueling hardship and trajedy are well portrayed - as are the portraits of each individual. It truly takes the 3 books written about this seminal journey and adds information from the diaries and other writings of the various figures involved; and, this is artfully done by shifting voices. The book flows well and holds suspense to a surprising degree even to those who know the eventual outcome.

Great adventure story of human courage, especially considering the early day equipment and poor maps they had for guides.

The first half of the book is identical to "Lure of the Labrador Wild". I did not know this in advance, but still enjoyed reading it again.

Written well. I had read this book years ago, loved it and had a hard time tracking it down. I am looking forward to reliving this tremendous journey again!
