Shooting the Rapids

From Canoes: A Natural History in North America by Mark Neuzil and Norman Sims

  • This is one of Hopkins’ well-known later works; the rapids are at Lachine near Montreal and it appears that this may be a day trip because there are no packs, baggage or cargo in the canoe du maitre.
