“The stories in Canoes are a tribute to the first People who, 500 or 1,000 or even 5,000 years ago, built a craft designed to such perfection that it has plied the waters fundamentally unchanged ever since.

Norman Sims, a longtime whitewater canoeist and an active member of both the Appalachian Mountain Club and the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association has a small collection of antique Morris wood-and-canvas canoes. 

Sims is a retired honors professor from the University of Massachusetts Amherst and a past president of the International Association for Literary Journalism Studies. This is his sixth book. 


Learn about the paddling opportunities the Sudbury, Assabet and Concord Rivers provide to those within the greater Boston area. In 1999 the U.S. Congress designated 29 free-flowing miles of the three rivers as “Wild & Scenic” for their outstanding ecology, history, scenery, recreation values, and place in American literature. Paddle down these rivers and you are in a different world!
