A retired Latvian professor’s tale about an 800-mile canoe expedition in northern Canada has been published by Toronto-based Natural Heritage Books.

The 176-page book, From Reindeer Lake to Eskimo Point, includes a foreward by George (Juris) Luste, a fellow Latvian who led the trip, Kazaks said.

The expedition took Kazaks, Luste and two other men from Reindeer Lake on the Manitoba-Saskatchewan border, north into Nunavut province to Hudson Bay, according to the publisher’s description of the book.

Kazaks, who studied at McGill University, Yale University and the University of California at Davis, is a retired physics professor from New College in Sarasota, Fla. He now lives in Davis, Calif.
