by Richard E. Winslow III

Readers’ Comments

“I have always been honored that Dick chose to share his writing and photos with all of you on our pages over these many years. They added a unique and broadening outlook to the magazine.”

—Bob Hicks, publisher and editor of Messing About in Boats

“A maritime historian, library answer man, canoe enthusiast, nature writer, Seacoast New Hampshire booster, and indefatigable researcher.”

—Michael Birkner, Professor of History, Gettysburg College, long-time friend of Richard Winslow

“Dick Winslow loved the Arctic and Subarctic regions of the North American continent. This book encapsulates his passion for the exploration of those Great Barren lands and its northern waters of uncountable rivers and lakes. His wish was for everyone to recognize the value of that area and the need to preserve it.”

—James R. Abel, Leader of the 1988 Perry River Expedition

About the Author

Dick Winslow (1934-2021) was educated at Mount Hermon School, Amherst College, Union College, the University of New Hampshire, and Penn State. He was devoted to historical research, nonfiction writing, and wilderness expeditions.

Dick was a reference librarian at the Portsmouth Public Library, an historian with the Portsmouth Marine Society, and the author of numerous magazine articles and eight books.

Perhaps his most enjoyable hobby involved making the rounds of fishing camps, Appalachian Mountain Club huts and lodges, and Audubon Society retreat houses to mingle with other outdoors enthusiasts and absorb their stories. Dick’s favorite indoor pastime was to devour canoeing and mountaineering narratives, which provided the impetus for future expeditions. Like all who canoed there, Dick eagerly awaited heading back to resume paddling on the Arctic’s lakes and rivers.
