    In 1948, Robert Flaherty was working on "The Louisiana Story." He was searching for a small boat, or "pirogue" for his young hero. Flaherty soon became aware that pirogue-making was a disappearing art. Finally, when he found Ebdon Allemon, a Cajun craftsman, he persuaded him to make the pirogue. It may well have been the last piroque made in Louisiana. This is a record of that event.

    Default The Singing Wilderness excerpt



    Excerpt from the documentary on the life of Sigurd F. Olson and the meaning of wilderness. This is a work-in-progress, seeking funding. Olson (1899-1982) was a wilderness writer, canoe guide and conservationist and the title comes from his first book of essays, published in 1956. Olson believed that contact with wilderness was vital to the health of the human spirit. Among his many accomplishments, he was largely responsible for the preservation of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in northern Minnesota and played a major role in the creation of the Wilderness Act of 1964.

    Director and cinematographer: Peter Olsen

    Default White Water Summer

    OK, a not-so-serious post.
    You can watch White Water Summer (1987) (starring Homer Simpson's favourite actor (Hmmmm) Kevin Bacon) for free on Crackle TV website. You could also find it on a Smart TV with the Crackle App installed. You will have to sit through a few ads in exchange for the free view.
    I FFwd'ed to the finale at 1h17m. A few minutes quite spectacular open boating on big water.
    If you are a Coleman owner and precious about your boat getting a few scratches, look away now!

    Great find. This is what it is all about for me...

    First film I'd seen - I talked to Emma (the film Maker) just after she returned and had posted the film on Vimeo. I'd not seen the second film - great emotions and great spirit.

    Just watched Bill and the solo whitewater film. The link is now posted on my club site for the kids, his explanation of reading white water is brilliant and put in terms which are so easy to understand.
