Canoes: A Natural History in North America

Details

Canoes: A Natural History in North America
By Mark Neuzil and Norman Sims
Forward by John McPhee

Ancient records of canoes are found from the Pacific Northwest to the coast of Maine, in Minnesota and Mexico, in the Southeast and across the Caribbean. If a person of those distant times might encounter a canoe of our day-whether birch bark or dugout or a modern marvel made of carbon fiber-its sillouette would be instantly recognizable. This is the story of that singular American artifact, so little changed over time: of canoes old and new; the people who made them; the labors and adventures the shared. With features of technology, industry, art, and survival, the canoe carries deep into the natural and cultural history of North America.
