Some Comments From Your Host

This is a book that has fascinated me ever since I first discovered it several years ago. I originally had purchased the plates from Mystic Seaport (which has reprinted that portion of the book) when I lived in New York. The plates are wonderful to look at, and a very small portion of the accompanying text (with some offsets) was included in the Mystic reprint. However, I just knew I was missing out on a lot...

Shortly after arriving in Wisconsin, I found a copy of the text in the public library. Aha! Sort of like a kid at Christmas, I eagerly tore into it. The rest, as they say, is history. The only problem I have with the book is that I can't decide which canoe to build first!
