K.R. in the Blogosphere: “Northwest Passage” in the News – a Blast from the Past

My Military History has a nice post showing snippets of news from the past regarding Roberts’ novel Northwest Passage and the movie based upon that book.  Russ, the author of the blog, sent me links to these contemporary news bits, but I’ve been unable to do anything with them yet (doctoral work … ‘nough said).  I’m glad he worked up something showing contemporary reaction to Roberts’ work.

Hopefully I’ll be able to take a gander at these clippings in more detail in the near future; until then, stop on by Russ’ blog and enjoy.
