Synopsis

Wild Water: Canoeing and Kayaking by Neil Champion

Canoeing and kayaking are hugely popular adventure sports - boats that were originally designed for hunters in places like Canada are now made from high-tech materials and are now used in competitive sport as well as a means of travel. This book explores exactly what you will need to get started in this exciting pursuit. From the boat and the protective equipment, to paddling styles, skills, taking part in competitions and events or even planning adventures of your own. You'll find everything you need to get out there and enjoy some wild water! You'll need to stay safe too, so there is plenty of advice about how to minimise the risks and an emphasis on making sure you never venture out on the water alone. This book also takes a look at some of the world's best canoeing spots and tells the amazing survival stories of some famous (and not so famous) paddlers. Part of the six book series Adventure Outdoors. An action-packed introduction to some of the most popular outdoor pursuits. Suitable for KS2-3.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
