Swirling rapids and daring rescues.
Forgotten maps and stolen canoes.
Bigfoot encounters and yes, even canoeing with his mother-in-law.

Gather round the campfire and let your imagination be captivated by these canoeing stories. Laugh at the things that went wrong. Live the suspense of each tale. Learn what (not) to do on your next paddling trip. Love both the adventures and the absurdities.

Delight in Kyle Penner’s story-telling as he recounts 17 canoe trips from his home province of Manitoba. Marvel at the artwork of his beloved mother-in-law, Patti Enns, as she brings each story to life with her meticulous maps. And be inspired to pack your bags, load up your canoe, and call your friends (or mother-in-law) to go paddling.

“…all the charm and adventure of a week long trek into the Canadian woods. Kyle Penner is the best of travelling companions: relaxed, keen — and amusing.” – Roy MacGregor, author of Canoe Country: The Making of Canada

"The stories have a familiar feel that every outdoors enthusiast can relate to but with a twist that kept me wanting to read more! What a great read!" – Mike Ranta, author, canoeist

"Just getting into a canoe can be an adventure in itself, but paddling off into the wilderness with your mother-in-law pretty much ups that likelihood to a certainty. I hope you enjoy reading Kyle's canoeing tales as much as I did!" – Dana Starkell, Paddle to the Amazon

"Kyle Penner’s stories read like a downhill portage after the peak of blackfly season. They’re a joy to devour, and exhilarating enough to want to pore over again and again." – Kevin Callan (a.k.a. The Happy Camper), author of Once Around Algonquin: An Epic Canoe Journey
