    An enjoyable paperback.

    This has little (well, nothing, to be accurate) to do with navigation, but
    I've just enjoyed reading "Does anyone read Lake Hazen?", by C. Ian Jackson
    (CCI Press, 2002) so much that I feel the need to share it. I couldn't put
    it down, and am still chuckling about it.
    
    It's "occasional publication No 53", of the Canadian Circumpolar Institute,
    ISBN 1-896445-24-1, so perhaps not the sort of thing you would find on a
    railway station bookstall.
    
    You might summarise the story line  thus- "Four young graduates manned an
    observation station for a year in the very far North of Canada, in 1957.
    Not much happened."
    
    However, the anti-Heroic style, and the humour, reminded me strongly of
    Eric Newby's "A short walk in the Hindu Kush", my favourite travel book of
    all.
    
    Apologies for going off-topic.
    
    George.
