5.0 out of 5 stars An excellant book on Canoeing, 23 May 2002
By A Customer
This book is a bible to paddlers in the canadian style!
It takes you from basics right through to reading and tackling white water.
This book has changed very little over the years except updates by his son as regards new materials i.e Carbon, Diolin etc.
The only Drawback are the photographs which are sometimes a little hard to see due to them being black and white and the contrast is iffy!! anyway its about going out and trying yourself and not looking at pictures
anyway happy paddling
yours in rubber

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books on canoeing!, 2 April 2008
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just obtained a used copy as out of print. Well worth the effort. This is one of the most technically detailed and useful books on canoeing I have read. The detail is well illustrated with tales and photos of relevant experiences. The main body of the book was written in 1984, supplemented by updates added in the 90's. It is enlightening to read a book so interesting, relevant and inspiring. The liberal use of photos to support the explanations of techniques work very well. This book is by far the best book on Canadian canoe technique.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Illustrated and informative, 15 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is a shame that this is now out of print as it is very good at showing technique without having to watch a DVD. A new version done by Bill Mason's son is apparently on the way. Exellent book!

This review is from: Path of the Paddle (Paperback)
Path of the Paddle seems to be a great book that has stood the test of time on canoeing over the last 20 odd years. Good all round manual, high level of detail on different techniques etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars buy it, 20 Dec. 2014
This review is from: Path of the Paddle: An Illustrated Guide to the Art of Canoeing (Paperback)
A must read for all serious open boaters! Some of the black and white pictures could be clearer, but then they were taken a fair few years ago with an old camera?

5.0 out of 5 stars All open canoeists should have a copy, 5 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I finally managed to replace my original copy after I had lent it out and not had it returned, this is a classic open canoe book and all open canoeists should own a copy.

A great book with useful photos and diagrams, still as relevant today as it was when first published.

Check out some of the Bill Mason films for a great insight into open canoeing.

Very useful reference book for the basic skills right through to more advanced white water techniques.
