Wallace recovered from severe frostbite, went on to write a best seller about their tragic trip, ‘The Lure of the Labrador Wild’, and then succeeded in making the trip from North West River to Ungava Bay in 1905.  Mina Hubbard did the same trip in 1905 by a slightly different route, in competition against Wallace and with Elson as a member of her team. 

The map to the left is from ‘My Explorations in Unknown Labrador’ by Mrs. Hubbard.  She followed the route that she felt her husband had intended to take.  Wallace followed the same route, in his trip in 1905, except for taking the Innu Portage around the rapids on the upper part of the Naskaupi.

Mrs. Hubbard had developed a hatred for Wallace, considering that he had badly treated her husband in his book, and she was determined to deny Wallace the satisfaction of being the first to complete the epic trip.  Mrs. Hubbard’s trip was unprecedented and she and her team arrived first at Ungava Bay, Wallace almost losing his life on this trip as well.  Both wrote books, respectively: ‘A Woman’s Way Through Wildest Labrador’, and ‘The Long Labrador Trail’.  These two books, plus Wallace’s first book, have fascinated those in love with adventure ever since.
