For paddlers young and old, canoeing is the perfect way to experience the wonder and excitement of the great outdoors. In order to enjoy your canoeing adventure to its fullest, it's helpful to understand the basics of this popular and accessible sport. In the L.L. Bean Canoeing Handbook, Allan A. Swenson teams up with staff members from the L.L. Bean Outdoor Discovery School to offer authoritative yet friendly advice on: selecting the best canoe and paddles, mastering the basic strokes, capsizing and recovery, enjoying natural discoveries on the water, buying equipment and clothing, efficient packing strategies, planning day trips and overnight outings, environmental stewardship, meals and snacks in the outdoors, and safety on and off the water.A special chapter on strokes and boat-handling skills includes step-by-step, illustrated instructions that are easy enough for even the first-time paddler to follow. The book goes on to offer invaluable information on everything from great canoeing adventures across the country - including the names and contacts for outdoor outfitters, schools, organizations and Web sites - to special activities for youngsters such as casting animal tracks with Plaster of Paris. With all this and more, the L.L. Bean Canoeing Handbook is the perfect book for any individual, parent, or guide planning a trip down one of North America's waterways.
