Neuzil_Canoes cover USEMark Neuzil will be at Stone Harbor Wilderness Supply during the North Shore Water Festival on Saturday, July 21 at 2:00 p.m. for a signing and presentation of his co-authored book, Canoes: A Natural History in North America.

This is the story of the canoe, that singular American artifact so little changed over time. Featured here are canoes old and new, from birch bark to dugout to carbon fiber; the people who made them; and the adventures they shared. With features of technology, industry, art, and survival, the canoe carries us deep into the natural and cultural history of North America.


"Mark Neuzil and Norman Sims have written a wonderfully detailed biography of the vessel that made North America possible, treating it as a living, breathing personality. As enjoyable as a swift, steady, and smooth river, this is the ideal book for canoeists—the perfect canoe trip of a read." —Roy MacGregor, author of Canoe Country: The Making of Canada


"Whether you love to paddle, cherish the look of the vintage canoe hanging above your fireplace or simply just appreciate canoes, this book is for you." —Cabin Living Magazine
