Books, Publications, Movies

Unfortunately, we live in a country where the seasons do not allow us to paddle twelve months a year (unless we're willing to break ice or head south).  

That being the case, our winters are often spent living the canoe trip experience vicariously.  Sitting in front of the woodstove reading the newest route guide isn't such a bad way to spend a frosty winter day.

We are starting to gather together a compendium of books, available through Amazon, that are related to many aspects of canoeing - routes, history, building canoes, kayaks & paddles, technique, navigation etc.  If you have favourite books or topic categories that are not included here, please email admin at with your suggestions.  This section will be developed gradually & constantly added to.

Any books that are ordered from Amazon through our CCR website will earn a small percentage that will go towards maintaining this website.
