Book description
The definitive guide to building this classic watercraft. (SEE QUOTE.)

From the Back Cover:
The Maine guide canoe is an emblem of the great wilderness of Maine-and of brilliant craftsmanship. In this classic book, master canoe builder Jerry Stelmok shares his vast knowledge and experience, taking you through the entire building process in clear, step-by-step progression with large photographs detailing every stage.
This book is much more than just a how-to, though. It is also a tribute to the learning and dedication of the craftsmen who build canoes, a history of the development and use of the canoe, and a meditation on the relationship between man and nature.
For those who long for the grace, flexibility, and durability of the traditional cedar canoe, this book offers a unique opportunity to both own and build one.
