Connie Helmericks is the bravest, brashest, most adventuresome woman I have ever seen! The woman fears nothing but admits to being "frightened" at times by such trivial things as a polar bear busting through the front door of her snow cabin! (this was from another one of her adventures, "Our Alaskan Winter")

Connie took her 13 and 15 year old daughters on a thousand mile trip down the McKinsey River in Canada to the Arctic Sea! She suffered the growing pains of her daughters and all the inherent hardships of a camping canoe trip of months long duration.

Visiting Great Slave Lake and Great Bear Lake were just two of many adventuresome milestones during her trip!

Connie Helmericks has the ability to "take you there" with her on her trip! What a splendid writer! I love this woman!

Thank you Connie Helmericks, for writing such an enriching, adventuresome book!

I read this book several times. Found it at a B&B in Ft. Vermillion Alberta, and had to have my own copy. Truly a gripping adventure of three women travelling the wild rivers of the north. Serendipitous and gritty, the story is of both tough survival and deep enjoyment of the landscape. It almost gives a transcendent view sometimes in that the obstacles surmounted are so unbelievable, that the blissful moments are just as powerful. A great read, especially if you love the northern wilderness.

Very detailed description of the trip down the river and the lives of the three women who took the trip. This is the third book I have read of Jean Aspen in Alaska and it was interesting to see her as a teenager.

I bought this book for my husband as he loves true stories and Alaska. He couldn't put it down. Would recommend to anyone who loves Alaska.

I loved the story of Constance and her daughters taking the risk of canoeing down the rivers of the Artic. I also enjoyed the stories of the people that they met.

When I first got this book, though I read a lot, I was a bit intimidated by the size of it. I wondered if it was going to drag on and on and put off reading it for awhile.

That was a mistake. I wish it was twice as long.

I got turned on to the book after reading and loving Jean Aspen's two books, Arctic Daughter and Arctic Son. Constance Helmericks was her mother, and Down the Wild River North is the story of how Jean and her sister were saved from their mundane suburban existance by a fearless, adventurous mother who was determined to see that her daughters truly understood what wilderness meant, firsthand.

The story is both fully engaging and well-written. I love the language of that time period, of the '60s. I love the feel of it, of the emotions of leaving security and family behind for a crazy canoe trip down wild rivers that only Indians and trappers dare traverse. This is also an inspirational journey for all those parents who think they can't do things like this with their children. Here is a single parent taking her two kids into situations most of us will never dare....and the transformation of the family is poignant.

I sure wish that there more like this one.
