Canoeing memoir at Mill Street Books

Ottawa author Phil Weir send us this information about his new memoir, available at Mill Street Books.

If Algonquin Park holds a special place in your heart, Phil Weir’s new book “End of the Portage: A Canoe Memoir” will bring you along on a beautiful canoeing and camping trip – or rather two trips – on the lovely Petawawa River. Part mystery, and part celebration of the natural world, Weir shares both his wonderful true Canadian canoeing story, and the inner journey of the solo paddler.

Whether a person just loves to read true stories that celebrate wild nature, is a canoeist or kayaker, or perhaps is someone who once paddled or has never paddled, “End of the Portage” will transport them to the heart of Algonquin Park.

Just published by Wildwaters Publishing ( “End of the Portage” is Weir’s second true canoeing story. “Canoeing the Mountain: Gifts from the Waters,” based on the Mountain River in the Northwest Territories, was published in 2014.
