    The upper Thelon is easy to canoe because it's mostly fairly fast river with very few rapids. Most of the lake paddling occurs on the first few days of the trip. After that, it's nearly all swift-flowing river with only the occasional easy rapid. Although this book is a guide book in the traditional sense, boasting over 60 beautifully illustrated maps, its got a whole lot more going for it. Michelle expertly weaves in myths and legends of the native people, and adds in interesting quotes from people who have traveled before her.

    The Thelon River country is beautiful, but in a different and less dramatic way than on the Clarke. What the Thelon does offer, more than anywhere else in the Barren Lands, is a wide assortment of spectacular wildlife. The Clarke and Thelon Rivers has always been a great trip to spot tundra wolves. Get this from a library! Thelon: a river sanctuary. [David F Pelly; Canadian Recreational Canoeing Association.] -- David Pelly tells the Thelon's story, exploring the mystery of Man's relationship with this special place in the heart of Canada's vast Arctic barrenlands. From Thanadelthur and Telaruk to J.W.

    The Thelon is a big, shallow, clear-water river with a strong current but very few rapids. It's the largest river on the tundra, by far the easiest to canoe, and easily the most magnificent. The country along the Thelon differs markedly from the Clarke. It's a much larger river . The day journey downriver from the Hanbury-Thelon confluence to Baker Lake is less difficult. It has some fast water stretches, but it is generally free of portages. Beaches along the shores of the Beverly Lake, Aberdeen Lake and Schultz Lake sections of the Thelon Heritage River journey make excellent campsites.
