I'm looking to buy a gift for a friend who is relatively new to canoing -- took it up about 3 years ago.

I'm less interested in resource material (Kevin Callan et al), and more interested in some historical and/or fictional adventure reading. I'm looking for something that would entertain a moderate reader -- something like Gary Paulsen's "Hatchet".

All suggestions welcome.

Thank you!

the book..CANOEING WITH THE CREE..by eric sevareid is a excellent book about 2 young canoers who travel a 2,250
mile voyage from minneapolis to hudson bay. it can be obtained in paperback from amazon.com. most big libraries would have it
also. its a real life adventure!

Maybe a book written in the area you'll be canoeing in... for Algonquin, Along the Trail in Algonquin Park: With Ralph Bice.

For Quetico, The Singing Wilderness by Sigurd Olsen.

For anywhere: Sigurd Olson's "The Singing Wilderness" and "Listening Point", or the compilation "Wilderness Days". I think it was Bill Mason that said that Sigurd Olson taught him to see.
