Keewaydin Way Publication Scheduled for 2003
About The New Book - A Second Edition FAQ
How much of the first edition will be in the second edition?
All of it. The second edition will include the entire corrected text of the first edition. All the photos and art from the first edition, where the originals have been located, will be in the second edition.
What's going to be new in the second edition?
New chapters will include, but not be limited to, Reimers' era, Chivers' era, Outpost, Staff-Guide Way and the other Keewaydins — including Dunmore. There will be new stuff on wood-canvas canoes, Lake Temagami, Grey Owl, Mattawa, Mattawa guides, Nishe, Heb Evans, old songs, old cookbooks, and many great stories from the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s. There are also some new early historical discoveries made since the first printing and will be included. Photo spreads will be added on Keewaydin Archeology, Outpost, HBC posts visited and other subjects. More half-told stories you heard that were never finished. Now you'll get the endings.
The trip lists will be brought up to date, with expanded route descriptions and campers names for all trips since 1938. The glossary will be enlarged. Additional lists will include, but will not be limited to: Chivers Award, Keewaydin directors, Ojibway directors, canoe eras and wood-canvas canoe fleets.
There will be a pile of new maps and photos. We expect the second edition to be 400 pages, 100 per cent larger than the first edition.
And there's a ton more that I haven't mentioned. Got an hour?
