More Information:
The Canoe brings to mind the early exploration of our continent and links us to our vanishing wilderness. In North American culture, the canoe has become more than recreation and more than transportation; it has become a symbol of our collective heart and soul.

The Canoe is unique in its scope and depth, and at long last, brings us a book worthy of the subject and its importance to our sense of our history. It brings together 12 experts in the field who, in collaboration with the world-renowned Canadian Canoe Museum and with the cooperation of museums around the world, have created the definitive book of the canoe past and present.

There has never been anything as comprehensive as this book. It covers the canoe's past among Native peoples and the first European settlers, its development into the recreational craft of today, and the preservation of its ongoing legacy.

THE CANOE FEATURES:

* expert authors on a range of canoe history, craft and preservation
* support & collaboration of scholars and museums throughout the world
* over 400 beautiful images of canoe craftsmanship and scenery, including rare archival photos
* detailed maps, glossary and index
