Full-color photos show the step-by-step process through which craftsman Joe Seliga makes a canoe. His canoes are wood frames covered with canvas and waterproofed. The details in this book are amazing, and they really showcase the amount of care and attention that Seliga puts into making a single canoe.
Enjoyed a short stroll through my past - I met Joe once or twice and always admired his work and after meeting him, admired the kind person. I grew up enjoying a couple trips in the BWCAW and Quetico with some of his canoes, they really were special.

Great photos, gives the process a real presence. It's great that this book was produced, to capture the work of such an expert and true devotee of his art.
