    Dan Allen kindly replied, when I apologised for recommending a book about a
    winter in an observation station in the Canadian North, as being off the
    topic of Navigation-
    
    >No apologies needed.  I thank you for sharing George.  I consider this to be
    >related to NAV-L, as it motivates us to get out there and go see places!
    
    Yes, Dan, but I don't think many of us will be motivated to see this one,
    let alone spend a Winter there. I forgot to say that Lake Hazen is near the
    North end of Ellesmere Island, at a latitude of over 81deg North, about as
    far North as you can get even in Canada.
    
    And the title "Does anyone read Lake Hazen?" refers to the failure of their
    radio communication over several Winter months, which put them back into
    the age of the Polar travellers of a century ago.
    
    George.
