From the Publisher
"There are dozens of canoeing books that touch on the basics of canoe camping. This one really takes you beyond the fundamentals found in those books." - Amazon reviewer "Any one of Jacobson's tried-and-true tips is worth the price of the book. He gives make-it-yourself instructions for all sorts of useful items for canoeing and camping, as well as lots of sage advice regarding safety issues." - Amazon reviewer"There is no "filler" in this book. The auther has been-there-done-that, and this book is a gift for those of us interested in doing the same. Buy it if you're going on a canoe trip!" - Amazon reviewer
