Summer Reading

…one of the great pleasures of summer in the north country is canoeing! Canton was home, of course, to Rushton canoes and the many rivers, from the Racquette to the Grasse to the mightly St. Lawrence provide for wonderful paddling. We have our share of interesing materials on canoeing, starting the the Paul Jamieson archival collections (Jamieson’s work on Adirondack conservation is extremely important) and here are four recommended titles on canoes from our collection, starting with one by SLU alum and Canton resident Chris Angus:

McPhee’s book is about Maine and the Raffan book is obviously about Canada, but are those canoe places or what! Happy paddling and happier reading…
