Bark, Skin and Cedar What is more Canadian than a canoe? From the beautiful birchbark canoes of the Micmac to the powerful transport canoes of the voyageurs, from the sleek Peterborough canoe to the majestic wooden dugouts of the Haida, this vessel has defined and shaped us as a country. In his remarkable journey across Canada, James Raffan explores, through myth, legend and history, the ways in which the canoe has imprinted itself on our imaginations. Master canoeist Raffan recalls Native canoe traditions and traces the canoe's crucial role as an early trade link. He investigates its evolution as a leisure craft and examines its present-day importance for artists, writers and even advertisers - as a ready-made symbol of the outdoors. Interweaving legend, history and cultural analysis, and enlivened by personal anecdotes, Bark, Skin and Cedar is a richly layered exploration of this most evocative of images.
