9780006385141: Fire in the Bones: Bill Mason and the Canadian Canoeing Tradition
From the Publisher:

On the following Tuesday, he was diagnosed with terminal cancer, and died four months later, at age 59.

Today, seven years later, the legend of Bill Mason continues to wind its way through the hearts and minds of canoeists, wilderness lovers and all those touched by his remarkable spirit. In this moving and insightful biography, James Raffan reveals both the public and private lives of Bill Mason.

James Raffan's intimate knowledge of Bill Mason as a friend and fellow paddler, a man who could not contain his passion for canoeing and the outdoors, makes Fire in the Bones a marvelous read. Raffan tells of wild canoe trips, of film shoots full of fireworks between a cantankerous Mason and his crew and of the "oldest grey-haired teenager in the land" who regularly paddled with other ardent canoeists, including neighbor Pierre Elliott Trudeau. Entertaining and inspirational, Fire in the Bones is an important new biography that places Bill Mason within a uniquely Canadian artistic and wilderness tradition.
