Canoe Country: A Lovingly Skewed Geography of CanadaThis is James at his informed, entertaining and irreverent best talking about his favourite two subjects: Canada and canoes.   Originally prepared for a lecture tour for the Royal Scottish Geographical Society and since presented in across Canada as well as in various venues in Russia and Australia, this is a story about a country of rivers that, by virtue of its geography and history, is also a nation of canoes.  In his own distinctively playful way, drawing from his lifetime of experience and research into Canada and canoes, he shows how this fact is reflected in stamps, money, music, advertising, literature and popular culture.
