Format: Paperback
Army veteran David S. Cook presents Above the Gravelbar: The Native Canoe Routes of Maine, a reminiscence of great canoe travels along Maine's many interconnected waterways, combined with a deep respect for now Maine's Native peoples once used their watercraft to traverse the state. A handful of black-and-white maps illustrate this thoughtful chronicle, which delves deep into the history of individual routes. Above the Gravelbar is not a travel guide per se, but rather gives itself over to the rich, scenery-capturing detail sure to intrigue armchair travelers and canoe connoisseurs.

Packed with historical information about Native American canoe routes in Maine.
Also included are descriptions of how to make a birch bark canoe. This writer
has been deeply immersed in his topic for years, yet his style is light and
easy. A wonderfully informative book.

Came in on time. Content looks great. Have had no time to read in detail, so I can't vouch for that.
