The lure of the Labrador wild : the story of the exploring expedition conducted by Leonidas Hubbard, Jr. by Dillon Wallace( Book )

7 editions published between 1905 and 2004 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dillon Wallace (1863-1939) was an American lawyer, outdoorsman, author of non-fiction, fiction and magazine articles. His first book, The Lure of the Labrador Wild (1905) was a best-seller, as were many of his later books. ... In 1900 Dillon Wallace met Leonidas Hubbard, an assistant editor with Outing magazine.[1] Hubbard asked Wallace to join him on an exploratory trip through Labrador, the plan was to follow the Naskaupi River to Lake Michikamau, a region that had yet to be explored by Europeans. They departed in July 1903, but took the wrong river from the very start, following the much smaller and more difficult Susan River. Short on supplies, with winter coming on, Hubbard became ill and died of starvation. Wallace made it back alive."--Wikiped., June 2014

A woman's way through unknown Labrador by Mina Hubbard( Book )

3 editions published between 1983 and 2011 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1903, Leonidas Hubbard starved to death on an expedition to Labrador, at that time a largely unmapped part of the northern wilderness. His wife, Mina Benson Hubbard, resolved to complete her husband's work, becoming a skilled explorer in her own right. She set out in July 1905 and not only carried out her expedition in record time but created the first accurate map of the Labrador river system, thus correcting the earlier map that had led to her husband's death." "A woman's way through unknown Labrador, Hubbard's own account of her extraordinary accomplishments, gives us the perspective of an early twentieth-century woman on the landscape, on the people she met - including Innu, Cree, Inuit, and Metis - and on the journey itself. This memoir reveals how she gradually came to terms with her husband's death, gained confidence in her own abilities, and discovered not just Labrador but herself."--Jacket
