THE VOYAGE OF
ERASMUS: Ottawa to the Arctic
To All Friends,
This is the story many of you have been
asking us to write. It has taken us almost 20 years to get around
to it, but here it is as a downloadable eBook. In its more than 170 pages
it includes over
90 photos and charts, some hyperlinks and video. It is a PDF,
and best seen on a laptop or desktop computer screen with a free
Adobe Reader (https://get.adobe.com/reader/).

Contents, the Foreword by Roy MacSkimming and a sample chapter by clicking the link below.
