This is a book which brings to mind the early exploration of the North American continent and links us to that vanishing wilderness. In Canadian culture, the canoe has become more than recreation and more than transportation; it has become a symbol of the 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 historical importance. It brings together 12 experts in the field who, in collaboration with the world-renowned Canadian Canoe Museum and with the co-operation 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. Features expert authors on a range of canoe history, craft & preservation. Based on 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.
