An Introductory GuideBook - 1997
Imagine pulling your canoe to shore at the day's end, cooking up a hearty meal, and lying back in your warm sleeping bag to watch the stars. 'There is the feel of a paddle and the movement of a canoe, a magic compounded by distance, adventure, solitude and peace...' wrote Sigurd F. Olson in The Lonely Land. The pleasures of the extended canoe trip are boundless - provided the canoe doesn't tip from improper packing, your campsite isn't flooded, and the canoe doesn't float away. In canoe camping, knowledge, not ignorance, is bliss. Kuhne offers all you'll need to know to enjoy wilderness outings by canoe with advice on gear packing, bear-proofing food, trip planning, and campsite selection. Additionally, eight pages of full-color photographs, lists of resources, recipes for sumptuous wilderness meals and Dutch-oven cooking, and tips on weather watching, first aid, safety, and traceless camping make Canoe Camping an indispensable guide.
