All are welcome to the Filson's Flagship Store in Seattle on Wednesday, October 10 for the official book launch of Arctic Solitaire: A Boat, A Bay, and the Quest for the Perfect Bear.

The book details four summers' worth of trips aboard a 22' C-Dory cruiser named C-Sick. Photographer Paul Souders trailered the boat to the end of the road in northern Manitoba, then motored down the Nelson River toward Hudson Bay, and finally north to the Arctic Circle. All in search for the perfect polar bear photograph.

Author and photographer Paul Souders will be sharing stories and images from the book. There is a reception at 6:00pm and the presentation will begin at 6:30pm.

Filson Flagship store - 1741 1st Ave S, Seattle, WA 98134

And signed copies of the book are also available direct:

Paul, Thank you for the message. Great to hear the "rest of the story". I am looking forward to meeting you at Powell's in Portland. Hope to bring some friends too. (Portland area C-BRATS), hope to see you there, this is a great book, and a super C-Dory story, worth checking out and picking up.

NMI President Ron Wright gave your book a plug at the last Squalicum Yacht Club meeting, and mentioned you would be at Village Books in Fairhaven - has that already happened?

Dammit! I can't believe I overlooked your talk tonight. Filson and C-Dory's, two of my favorites. I go to book readings fairly often, and I'll bite on any excuse to traipse into Filson. What a missed opportunity, served right here in my back yard. But as Pat asked, will you be at Fairhaven?

Brock, Pat, looks like Village Books was Oct 4th. Darn it, missed them both.

Following two SE Alaska cruises in 2003 & 2004 with prior to that towing a inflatable boat to the Yukon & Northwest Territories, I put on my would like to do list, towing our CD22 up through Manitoba to the Nelson river & then making for Churchill or further north. With work preventing the actual attempt then & after retiring the logistics & dangers to high, gave up on actually doing it. Then to my amazement out comes this book ďArctic SolitaireĒ about it actually being done with a CD22. Even without any knowledge of C-Dory boats or photography this would have been to me a wonderful read. Paul Souderís writing is riveting & the adventure told, the equal of the more extreme undertakings, Iíve enjoyed reading about throughout my life. Icing on the cake was my being able to personally relate to his experiences, through my own extended time spent on our CD22 watching & photographing bears in SE Alaska & on the upper Yukon River. At twice the price it would have been money well spent.

I was surprised in a couple of technical details that was missed by Paul, that being, him saying, the boat was 8.5 feet wide instead of the actual 7.5 & the one twin Honda motor took 4 quarts of oil instead of 2. Yes trivial, but noticed due to very good detail in other aspects.

In the ole twins vs single category & Itís not revealed whether the twins vs single with kicker was planned in the purchase, but in several of the conditions & situations described, I donít think he would have made it through without the more powerful spare twin.

Jay
