Bibliography for "Stepping Stones".

Some of the books used to research for the trips to Baffin Island, Ungava and Labrador and later when researching for the books Stepping Stones and On Polar Tides, are detailed below. Some offer wonderful descriptions of early exploration into the wilderness of northern Canada; others technical data. Together they gave me a better understanding of the area and its history, enriching my own travel experience and stimulating more questions than I'll ever be able to answer. To the authors of these documents; thank you!
