This is the most comprehensive book on canoeing techniques ever published! Illustrated with 600 full-colour photographs, the wide-ranging text is designed for both beginner and seasoned canoeists. Gary & Joanie McGuffin, North America's most celebrated canoeing couple, discuss issues rarely covered in other how-to guides, such as developing fitness & balance. The book offers first-hand, experience-based instruction on outfitting, reading the river, paddling strokes for all flatwater and whitewater conditions, advanced turns and maneuvers, portaging, safety and rescue techniques - even how to tie a canoe on your vehicle.
