BOB HENDERSON | SEAN BLENKINSOP
Foreword by Bruce Cockburn
Includes: Composite Route Map & Favourite Local Paddling Places Map
A collection of 21 essays featuring authentic experiences and perspectives gleaned from paddling throughout Canada. This book aims to entertain, enlighten and challenge readers to shift their perspective on what paddling means to them. The language that we use to tell our stories matters and these honest experiences demonstrate that even the ordinary can be extraordinary.
“In an age of hedonistic adventure-seekers and unrestrained bushcrafters, we finally have an authoritative chronicle of the theoretical adventure, an abstract of exploration in a higher form. Paddling Pathways is a brilliant compendium of Canadian stories from real wilderness aficionados—a must-read for anyone who aspires to apprehend the juxtaposition of soul and nature. Bob Henderson and Sean Blenkinsop have brought together more than just an assemblage of the best outdoor writers; they have gathered wilderness purveyors whose stories hit the very core of the meaning of ‘the journey’ in gallant and self-effacing accounts.”
