Editorial Reviews

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!"
