Canoeing (Outdoor Adventures Series)

Great all-encompassing text
This text is excellent. It is full of photos that clearly show everything that is explained. Covers all paddle strokes, safety, pre-planning, types of canoeing, and river reading (with great diagrams.) Only thing missing is an index - so at times, it's hard to find exactly what you're looking for. But a great read and resource!

Canoeing with the Cree
A simple, inspiring adventure
My, how the world changes in 80 years! This is not a book with the profundity that Sevareid was later noted for. It is a straight off account of two boys setting out on an adventure more dangerous than they realized which could easily have cost them their lives. Fool-hardy, yes. But, how remarkable that they succeeded. The book gives insight to how primitive Northern Canada and the world was ...

Canoeing the Delaware River: Revised Edition
Rutgers University Press
The Author saved my life!
"A bunch of the boys were whooping it up at the Malamute Saloon." A mere verse by Robert Service you say? Aha. It actually was the beginning of an adventure along the Delaware River. A trip unimaginable without Mr. Letcher's book. What started out as a challenge to see who could start a raucously good time one evening turned into a better challenge; who could find a complete guide to an entire ...
Canoeing Michigan Rivers: A Comprehensive Guide to 45 Rivers, Revised and Updated
Thunder Bay Press
a very useful book
It would be nice if it were easy to scout out a river before driving to an access point and paddling it. This book does it for you. The directions to access points and places to park are very detailed and good. The maps are excellent and very clear. There are written notes on the problems or special circumstances you will encounter, which are very intelligent and accurate. I checked the ...
The Canoe Handbook: Techniques for Mastering the Sport of Canoeing

There is also very important info about reading water and identifying hazards such as ...
The Complete Book of Canoeing, 3rd (Canoeing how-to)
I. Herbert Gordon
I think that this book covered a lot of the material needed for canoeing and is a good guide for teaching younger kids before going on a canoe trip. That is the reason that I looked at this book because I am an environmental educator and was planning a canoe trip. It is a good source.
Expedition Canoeing, 20th Anniversary Edition: A Guide to Canoeing Wild Rivers in North America (Falcon ...

Outdoor Navigation With GPS: Hiking, Geocaching, Canoeing, Kayaking, Fishing, Outdoor Photography, ...
Stephen W. Hinch
New to GPS? Get this!
Being new to GPS, I considered myself a 'dummy' on the subject, so I purchased 'GPS for Dummies' and was disappointed. After researching more books on the subject, I chose this book, and realized I should have purchased it initially. This is the second edition, published in 2007, and is the most up to date book I have found. It not only covers using a GPS receiver (GPSr), but many other facets ...

Menasha Ridge Press
Beginning Paddler in Texarkana
I was looking for a guide to the many rivers and creeks to take multi-day excursions with my family in Arkansas and the close by rivers to Texarkana where I now live. I am a beginner paddler and need to have details but as any person who is overwhelmed by information, a concise and clear presentation is very helpful. On both counts, this book delivers. Having GPS coordinates is particularly ...

Stephen E. Gillen
A must have for anyone looking for river adventures in Ohio!
Within two days of reading this book, My brother and I had one of the most memorable canoe canoe trips we've ever had. The authors have done the necessary legwork in not only identifying all of Ohio's rivers, but they give you detailed descriptions of each river, maps that show access points, including distances between points in both river miles, and shuttle miles for your car. They also list ...
Freshwater Saga: Memoirs of a Lifetime of Wilderness Canoeing in Canada
Eric W. Morse
At an Ottawa dinner party in 1951 a group of three Canadians and three foreign diplomats planned a canoe trip on the Gatineau River. It was the first of many trips by a group dubbed by the Ottawa press the Voyageurs, whose most enthusiastic member was Eric Morse. Morse loved canoeing. This memoir is a celebration of his ruling passion and the friends who shared it with him. As a boy Morse had found his hunger for wilderness satisfied on ...
A Canoeing & Kayaking Guide to Florida, 2nd (Canoeing & Kayaking Guides - Menasha)
Elizabeth F. Carter

Good Guide to paddling Florida
This is a good guide packed full with good info. You are going to need to buy a DeLorme atlas for Florida along with it. The maps in the book are pretty scant.
Paddling Pennsylvania: Kayaking and Canoeing the Keystone State's Rivers and Lakes
Pick up your paddle and go!
I now understand why it has taken so long for a book on this subject to be published; it is simply a monumental undertaking, and Mr. Mitchell is to be congratulated for his effort. As he mentions in his introduction, PA has 'more waterway miles than any state except Alaska'. The real challenge in writing this book was deciding where to draw the line in the scope of what it would cover, and do it ...
