      Peter,

      A summer expediton that covers much of the same route in canoes can
      be found in the book DISTANT FIRES. It is a good winter read and is
      probably available on the web as a used book. The first part of the
      book covers from Duluth, up Lake Superior, through the Boundry Waters
      and the second half goes through the part covered in the "Quest for
      the Bay".

      More on topic for this site, the author uses a canoe made of Kevlar
      and commentary that runs through the book showcases the benefits of
      this material for its lightweight and ability to absorb abuse.

      Bob P.
