    Default Expedition Canoeing - Cliff Jacobson

    This is a good book to read if you like "Canoeing- Beyond the Basics". Cliff goes into much more detail about canoe covers, encounters with Bears etc and provides many more anecdotes from his many travels. Most of the photos are black and white, but the content is fantastic

    I quite enjoy that one too but we part company a few times when it comes to how to do things. Still in the top five books on the subject.


    If you get the chance to meet him at the canoe symposium in the UK bring your book, he is adamant that you get them signed. It will be interesting to see if he personalizes them or uses the same thing over and over.

    Is this the same one as "Canoeing Wild Rivers" published in !984 ??
    If its the same one I won't bother buying another.
    I suppose it may have been updated now as it is 23 years old.
    it makes me feel old as I bought it new when it first came out.

    I would have to say yes as it is the 20th aniversary edition...

    but that is an educated guess.

    An educated guess now that sounds serious.

    I wonder how much it has been changed, mine does have the canoe cover part in it.

    But then its much the same as the one in the "Solo Canoeing " book.
