An excellent definitive book ... something you must read if you are going to build a woodstrip canoe. (Canoeist 2001-07-01)
If you want to build a strip-plank canoe -- or kayak -- Canoecraft is the book to buy... All in all a very comprehensive boatbuilding book and highly recommended. (Pete Greenfield Water Craft)

There really isn't anything better than this book, the bible of cedar strip builds. I used this book alone to build a beautiful boat. The product recommendations and detailed instructions make building a boat a whole lot easier on the nerves. If you are itching to build your own boat, pick up this book and read it cover to cover. Then get started by reading as you approach each step. It paid off for me.
Also, mid sentence interruptions 4 pages in length are inserted for builders tips. These are major hiccups in the flow of reading. I'm sure this is the publishers doing to save a dollar every 100 or so copies. It won't hinder building a boat but does add frustration.
