An Illustrated HistoryBook - 2000
This book explores the relationship between North Americans and the canoe - from its place as a symbol of aboriginal mobility, spirituality and craftsmanship to its role as an instrument for commercial trade, recreation and sport. With historic accounts of famous canoe trips and infamous battles, detailed explanations of canoe building - a craft that is very much alive today - and more than 80 photographs, this is the must-reading for paddlers and historians alike.
