PRICE: £7.99
PAGES: p/b; 146pp; illustrations

This is the story of the construction of birch-bark canoes and of a 150-mile trip through the Maine woods in those graceful survivors of Native American technology. As McPhee presents the lore of the bark canoe, he also narrates an extraordinary story: of battling tenacious winds on Chamberlain Lake, of exhausting portages, of coming upon scenes of breathtaking beauty, and of the slowly developing tension among the five people on the trip.

A book for nature watchers, for boatmen, for traditional craftsmen and for armchair adventurers.

This is also a book of great literary strength. The acclaimed author was awarded the Pulitzer prize for another work, "Annals of the Former World", his books have never been out of print and House of Lochar is proud to publish "The Survival of the Bark Canoe" in its first European edition.
