Woods and Lakes of Maine (1883) Illustrations

Another great canoe related find on is Luther Prescott Hubbard's 1883 publication Woods and lakes of Maine : a trip from Moosehead Lake to New Brunswick in a birch-bark canoe.

I haven't gone through the whole book yet, but the downloadable PDF version(25mb) has some fantastic illustrations of the journey in a bark canoe.

Running the rapids (p.53)

Portaging the canoe (p.113)

Hunting Moose (p.155)

If my pyrography skills improve, I'm hoping to replicate some images like these are some paddle blades.
