Amur River Valley Canoe

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

Info

  • Boats from the Amur River valley region of Asia share similarities with Kutenai-Salish canoes across the sea in Canada, which has led to speculation about the transfer of the design from one culture to another, or its development independently for similar needs. Is this evidence of a long-gone land bridge?
