John McPhee is one of my favourite authors and this is one of my favourite books of his. (I've read about 20 of them.) His style brings you into his experiences without laying on too much extraneous opinion or bias, just enough to know what experiences he is bringing to the assignment.Was this review helpful?

John McPhee has written an outstanding narative about canoeing before aluminum and fiberglass. Weaving in elements of canoe construction, Thoreau's writings, his own trip with a birch bark canoe maker, even the movie 'Deliverence'. The characters are enjoyable. Will be thouroghly enjoyed by anyone who has been on a canoe trip or is planning on one.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
