In 1903 Hubbard's husband, Leonidas, starved to death on his cartographic and ethnographic expedition to Labrador. Hubbard decided to complete her husband's work, becoming a skilled explorer and cartographer in her own right. She set out in July 1905 and with the help of George Elson, a Métis guide who had been employed by her husband on the original trip, and three other guides completed her expedition in record time with significant results, including completing the first accurate map of the Labrador river system, thus correcting the earlier map that had led to her husband's death. Her original photographs and the map are reproduced in this volume.

About the Author:

Sherrill E. Grace is professor, English, University of British Columbia, and the author of Inventing Tom Thomson and Canada and the Idea of North. She is currently working as a consultant on a film about Mina Benson Hubbard.

Review:

"A Woman's Way Through Unknown Labrador is worthy of the same attention given to prominent exploration and travel writers on the Canadian North and should be recognized as part of the cannon of Victorian travel-writing and women's autobiography. Grace's introduction is beautifully written, and provides an impressive discussion of Hubbard's photographs and a wonderful analysis of the text, acting simultaneously as a map for readers entering the volume for the first time and a reflective discussion for readers already familiar with it." Carolyn Podruchny, History, Western Michigan University
