Information-packed tools for the novice or handy references for the veteran, these volumes distill years of knowledge into affordable and portable books. Whether you're planning a trip or thumbing for facts in the field, Basic Essentials books tell you what you need to know. With the Basic Essentials of Canoe Paddling, you can discover how to choose a paddle and outfit a canoe, get into a canoe, perform the basic forward stroke and correction strokes, turn and maneuver, paddle in wind, waves and moving water and keep water out of your boat.
