Canoes: A Journey of Art, Technology and Survival at OARS Annual Meeting

"The stories in Canoes are a tribute to the first People who, 500 or 1,000 or even 5,000 years ago, built a craft designed to such perfection that it has plied the waters fundamentally unchanged ever since."
With features of technology, industry, art, and survival, the canoe carries us deep into the natural and cultural history of North America.

Beautiful slide presentation by Norman Sims, co-author of Canoes: A Natural history in North America.
