From the Back Cover
This book is much more than just a how-to, though. It is also a tribute to the learning and dedication of the craftsmen who build canoes, a history of the development and use of the canoe, and a meditation on the relationship between man and nature.
For those who long for the grace, flexibility, and durability of the traditional cedar canoe, this book offers a unique opportunity to both own and build one.
