Description Technical Specs
 
The 2nd Edition of Ray Goodwin’s book ‘Canoeing’ adds an additional 27 pages of new content to his original book and adds over 100 extra photographs.

Ray has:

• expanded the section on children;
• added new solo rescue techniques:
• added more information on improvised rafting and sailing;
• included examples of tracking and lining on major expeditions;
• added inspirational canoe journeys; and
• included a new section on ‘vision patterns’, which is a method for creating a mental map of a rapid.

Ray Goodwin’s original book ‘Canoeing’ took him several years to write. And it shows in a highly positive way.

The 2nd Edition of Ray’s book contains over 900 photographs used in sequences and photo montages, it is lavishly illustrated and covers all aspects of the open canoe. These photographs were not taken over a short period of time in a single location. Rather, they were taken over the course of a number of years in numerous locations, all of which illustrate the points made or techniques demonstrated perfectly.

From canoe design to wilderness travel the scope of this book is broad.

What really sets it apart, however, is the focus on canoeing techniques. The combination of clear text, superb colour photographs and clean design mean this thoroughly modern-looking book brings new found clarity to the job of propelling and manoeuvring the traditional open canoe.

'Canoeing' is a must-have book for any paddler but also a valuable addition to anyone's library of outdoor books. All copies of Canoeing by Ray Goodwin (2nd Edition) sold by Frontier Bushcraft are signed by Ray.

Ray Goodwin is Frontier's resident canoe expert and is involved in all things canoe that we do, including the Expedition Canoeing Skills Course in the Lake District, River Spey Expedition in Scotland, and The French River and Bloodvein River expeditions in Canada.
