The White Canoe - Book Cover

Another canoe book find on is Elizabeth Monckton's The White Canoe, and other legends of the Ojibways (1904). The book cover has some decorated paddles with some etched style motifs that add a simple but attractive touch to the blade. Maybe something to replicate on a future paddle.

I'll admit I never heard of the White Canoe legend, but the downloadable PDF (12 MB) version was a pleasant read.
