Bark canoe builder Ferdy Goode has a new book illustrating his wonderful skill and artistry. Entitled BEAVER BARK CANOES : The Art and Works of Ferdy Goode, it is described as a photo-journal depicting birch bark canoes, bark baskets, Native style snowshoes and porcupine quill embroidery. Clicking on the image link below will send you to a partial online preview (first 21 pages) of the book with its stunning photos. A couple feature some fascinating paddle designs too. Looks to be a great addition to any bark canoe library.
I'm an avid canoeist and general "outdoorsy type" guy with a bit of an artistic side. Recently started this hobby of making custom canoe paddles after my disappointing experience with most commercial brands. This site documents various styles of single blade canoe paddles I've made or researched as well as other canoe related info I've stumbled across on my internet wanderings. Hope you enjoy your visit.
