Thanks Jeff but that is the link to the interview done by the Morning North people out of Sudbury 99.9. There have also been interviews done by CBC Here and Now in Toronto 99.1, CBC North in Iqaluit, and CBC North in Yellowknife. :clap:
Why so many? We have been talking about paintings done throughout Canada and the various stations have picked up on that.
So far the other interviews are not online. :(

It was really cool to hear the radio commercials in Sudbury on my way up north announcing your book signing. :thumbup:

It was fun seeing what goes on in a radio studio. Poeople moving around, in and out. Seemed like chaos but everyone calm. I would still rather be canoeing.
Here is the link to the Sudbury interview.

What a fantastic book! I spent a good chunk of Sunday reading the text and being amazed at the keen eye of the Waddingtons as they provide example after example of picture next to painting or drawing. It also had me looking at maps to figure out where various spots were. Their thirty-five year- long obsession has provided the canoe tripping community another dimension to the possible canoe trips that all of us love contemplating. Thanks, Sue and Jim for a magical book.

Thank you true_north.
Sue and I have had a great time finding these special places.
I particularly liked your phrase about "possible canoe trips that all of us love contemplating." So much of this hobby of our has been about contemplating possible canoe trips.
Of course, we also have enjoyed following your explorations of painting sites of a different kind.

What a relief! The truth is out.

For years we have been mere pawns of this dastardly conspiracy. We confess. We have told all in our newly released book “In the Footsteps of the Group of Seven.”

You are trying to bamboozle us: no way are you mere pawns. You two just may be the brains behind this secret society. Why else would you go across the country and address your acolytes - at this nasty time of the year?
