About this title:

Synopsis: Evocative essays and detailed line drawings depicting the fine arts of canoeing and camping celebrate a wide range of traditions surrounding these interrelated sports, from the hand-crafted wooden canoe to the cast iron skillet. 10,000 first printing.

Review: Collected from his "Traditions" column for Canoe and Kayak Magazine, From a Wooden Canoe pays tribute to the trusty hunting jackets that never seem to wear out, the sharpened pocket knives that men wear like badges, and the union suits they'll take to the grave. Dennis even dedicates a chapter to the unquestionable brilliance of duct tape. The atmosphere here is rustic do-it-yourself, memorializing a time when coated nylon was a fad and canvas was the standard. If you get misty for all that is well built and steeped in tradition, reading Jerry Dennis will be more like settling back down in front of the wood stove--a welcome respite from the chill of modern life. --Ben Tiffany
