"Paddle Adventuring with Canoe and Kayak ranges from the joy and zen of paddling to the zany, from novice to skilled tripping and family cruising. It describes lessons learned and possibilities that beckon from local to favored waters: Ontario lakes, Chesapeake and Florida rivers, New England, British Columbia coast, Alaska, coastal and interior Belize. Adventures range from mild to wild, global in scope to right round home. Paddling, a universal activity almost anyone can do, is a fastest growing recreation that is simple, versatile, hip, ecologically friendly, affordable, and a door to freedom that connects with nature and provides easy access to varieties of adventuring. Growing popularity of paddling is evident from appearance of these craft as background in various ads, and from the announcements touting hundreds of Chevy Truck “You Can Paddle” events: “Paddling brings sanity to an insane world... quiets society’s noise... reconnects us to something vital and real. Paddling can change your life if you let it.” James Raffan, author of Bark, Skin and Cedar, wrote “To paddle a canoe is to embark on a luminal journey that can sweep a willing heart across thresholds of new worlds.” Paddle Adventuring opens to some of these worlds. Dr. Louis Perez (of the Explorers Club), an early reader, summarized the book as “Doable Adventuring. Achievable dreams.” Paddle Adventuring’s poetry and over 700 photographs reflect the rhythm of paddle strokes, gentle rise and fall of ocean swells, and windy-day lapping of waves - a kaleidoscopic mix of shared experience, a window on a wide segment of the paddling world. Happenings in the paddling universe include motherships, urban paddling, new kayak designs, more water trails, remedial paddling, saving and restoring rivers. The paddle offers a return to a revitalizing conscious sense of body and self. Grabbing hold, a handle on your world, “paddling your own canoe”...or kayak, is instantly and tangibly responsive."

"

Herb Klinger, a former Non-Western Studies teacher, canoeing counselor and tripping director, Camping and Guidance Instructor at Teachers College, Columbia University, and with Program Development as Recreation Chief of the US Job Corps, has been a lifelong paddler.

He and his wife Judy spend much of their time on the British Columbia coast and paddling from an island cabin in Temagami, Ontario.

Book Description Trafford Publishing, Canada, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Most books on this subject fall into two categories: How-To s and Grand Expeditions. Paddle Adventuring happily fills some of the inviting spaces in-between. This tribute ranges from the joy and zen of paddling to the zany, from novice to skilled tripping and family cruising. It reflects useful lessons learned and possibilities that beckon - from local to favored waters like Ontario lakes country, Chesapeake and Florida rivers, New England, the British Columbia coast, Alaska, coastal and interior Belize. Millions of us are beneficiaries of a vast array of new outdoor and on-the-water possibilities, offering more than a lifetime of easily pursued adventure from mild to wild, from global in scope to after work, and right around home. Paddling is a universal activity unrestricted by age or sex that almost anyone can do, a recreational style that is simple, versatile, hip, wholesome, ecologically friendly, affordable, a door to freedom, connecting with nature and providing easy access to varieties of joyous adventuring. Increasingly we need outlets which offer diversion and simplicity in the face of daily complexity. Recent announcements touting hundreds of planned, You Can Paddle events in the United States put it this way: Paddling brings sanity to an insane world. It quiets society s noise and reconnects us to something vital and real. Paddling can change your life if you let it. .Chevy Trucks. James Raffan, author of Bark, Skin and Cedar, has written To paddle a canoe is to embark on a luminal journey that can sweep a willing heart across thresholds of new worlds.

As for the kaleidoscopic mix, the versifications might sometimes conjure faint company with Rap or Cowboy Poetry, but inspired this time by the rhythm of paddle strokes, the gentle rise and fall of the oceans swells, and the windy-day lapping of waves. It is an appreciation of useful shared experience, a window on a segment of the paddling world. Old timers may nod and chuckle; newcomers might be encouraged to just get out there, and go. There are references to much that is happening in the paddling universe-motherships, urban paddling, canoe design, canoe trails, kayak trends, paddling seniors, remedial paddling, safety, conservation, saving and restoring rivers- and some how-to s via the not-how-to s. The paddle offers a return to a conscious sense of body and self. From imagining to doing.
