Shortly after graduating from high school, Milton Erickson developed polio and hovered near death. Three years later, in June 1922 he undertook from his home in Wisconsin a canoe trip down the Mississippi River the purpose of which was to improve his strength and health. The canoe trip ended on August 1922, and Erickson accomplished his mission.
Milton H Erickson Foundation now makes the entire canoe diary available in its original form. From this document students are able to study one of the formative experiences in Erickson’s life.Canoe-Diary-Remastered-29-May-20161
