This page was build to serve anybody interested in canoeing literature (especially the German one) to get an rough overview of what's out there. The list is not complete by far, but if you send me an eMail on missing pieces, I will try my best to keep it updated. The focus, however, will remain on books which are not available from your bookstore any longer.
I also would like to point everybody interested in historical canoeing literature to the alternative and very extensive booklist of Herbert Kropp in Oldenburg/Germany, which is definitely worth a visit. As a good starting point for the subsequent hunt after real-world book copies I then would recommend e.g. the Zentrales Verzeichnis Antiquarischer Bücher (Online-bookshop for historic books).
And here you go to my own List of Canoeing Literature (as of year 2000)

Historic literature online:Use the following links to read some historic canoeing literature online - e.g. the first canoeing book in history:
'A Thousand Miles in the Rob Roy Canoe on Rivers and Lakes of Europe' von John Mac Gregor (1865):
'The voyage of the paper canoe' von N.Bishop (1878):
I would very much appreciate your hints via eMail to other examples of online canoeing literature to complement this short list !
