This is the story of the canoe, that singular American artifact so little changed over time. Featured here are canoes old and new, from birch bark to dugout to carbon fiber; the people who made them; and the adventures they shared. With features of technology, industry, art, and survival, the canoe carries us deep into the natural and cultural history of North America.
By the late 1950s, canoes represented the best in American outdoor life, appearing on the covers of magazines with regularity, such as this edition of Field & Stream from June 1959. There was more than a hint of nostalgia in the artwork by C. E. Monroe, Jr.
