| A THOUSAND MILES IN THE ROB ROY CANOE
On Rivers and Lakes of Europe,
by John. MacGregor. M.A., Trinity College, Cambridge; Barrister-at-Law, Captain of the Royal Canoe Club.
The man who started it all! What MacGregor might lack in literary brilliance (see Stevenson's An Inland Voyage ), he more than makes up for in his passion for the sport. Stevenson was more interested in what he found on his canoe trip, while MacGregor is more interested in how he finds it; namely the lightweight canoe. The canoes used by both Stevenson and MacGregor were more like what we would call kayaks today; narrow, decked, and propelled with a double paddle, they would not be out of place in moderate white water today. With a new Foreword by Brian Kologe. One pocketed map in colour.
