Now in paperback: A comprehensive history of North American canoe traditions. Includes contributions from eleven experts, photographs, maps and step-by-step photographs showing the building process.
From the Publisher:

The canoe was essential to the early exploration of North America. Today, it is a vital link to the natural environment and vast wilderness, still widely used for recreation, transportation and sport.

The Canoe is the definitive history of the construction and use of the canoe, kayak, dugout and umiak in North America. The book covers the canoe's origins among Native peoples, its quick adoption by European settlers, its development from a working vessel to a recreational craft.

Rare archival images, maps, artwork and stunning photographs of vintage canoes are included. Produced with the support and collaboration of scholars and museums throughout the world, The Canoe also features:

  • High-tech sport canoes and kayaks used in contemporary Olympic Games
  • 400 beautiful images of canoe craftsmanship
  • Step-by-step photos and explanations for building a traditional bark canoe
  • Profile of the famous model-builder, Tappan Adney
  • Detailed maps, glossary, source list and index.
