The revolution in canoe design that's taken place over the past ten years and the development of the bent-shaft paddle have brought to the fore a new style of paddling. It's called North American Touring Technique, or NATT for short. Paddle longer and faster with less effort. Posssess powerful, precise control over your canoe on flatwater, in big lake waves and in touring whitewater. Use all of your body to move the boat rather than just a few relatively weak muscle groups. It will promote a degree of teamwork that makes your days on the water more satisfying. And it's easy to learn! Absolute novices take to it immediately, and veteran padlers adapt to it readily.

From the Back Cover:

For a generation the Basic Essentials series has been as much a part of the outdoors experience as backpacks and hiking boots. 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. (5 1/2 x 8 1/2, 80 pages, diagrams)
