The author, an uncle of President Teddy Roosevelt, experienced adventure tourism on Lake Superior in mid-19th century, setting out from Cleveland in 1862 for Sault Ste. Marie. On his journey he paddled, fished, met "Indians," watched a spectacular sunset, arose and fished some more. At rear is a section on "Cookery For Sportsmen" with recipes for biscuits, corn bread, roasted oysters, griddle cakes, venison stew, and various alcoholic beverages, including the staggering "Nondescript Punch" on p. 347, guaranteed to be an adventure for anyone.
