Exploring the Boundary Waters: A Trip Planner and Guide to the BWCAW
3.  Exploring the Boundary Waters: A Trip Planner and Guide to the BWCAW by D. Pauly
The list author says:
  "The most complete and up-to-date guide available with detailed notes on nearly every lake and portage. Unfortunately, the book lacks an index for the more than 60 routes it describes. To find a 4 day, challenging trip you must search the headers to each of the 60+ routes. Still an exceptional reference for anyone heading to the BWCA.

Visit www.boundarywatersguide.com for more info."

Path of the Paddle: An Illustrated Guide to the Art of Canoeing
4.  Path of the Paddle: An Illustrated Guide to the Art of Canoeing by Bill Mason

Mason also produced films, now on DVD, by the same title illustrating the techniques. While the DVD is not available at Amazon, you can find it at REI and other outdoor stores."
