KIRKUS REVIEW

Johnson is an intrepid enthusiast, drifting downstream or shooting the rapids, and this self-sufficient guide paddies through the stream of canoeing terms and techniques with precise suggestions and bits of humor--in times of emergency, the backstroke is called ""@##$**!"" How to select a canoe and care for your purchase; pack and portage; and decide on equipment are all analyzed, their relative virtues examined, and his personal preferences indicated. Also included are sources for maps and essential paraphernalia and tips on everything from positioning by triangulation to mixing pastry batter without a bowl.
