2003 National Outdoor Book Award Winner Step-by-step photos on correct form and essential strokes Illustrated guide to river maneuvers plus information on gear, safety, choosing a canoe

This illustrated guide on the essential skills of canoeing should be required reading for anyone getting into the sport. A section on the mechanics of good paddling is followed by a catalog of the most important strokes, each illustrated in sequential photos, with concise text on the key points. Essential river maneuvers--eddy turns, peel-outs, and ferries--are demonstrated by the Olympic paddling team of Wayne Dickert and Horace Holden, Jr.
