Tonight, we’ll read from “Canoe and Camp Cookery : A Practical Cook Book For Canoeists, Corinthian Sailors and Outers” by H.H. Soulé [Soul-ay] under the pen name Seneca, published in 1893. This episode first aired in 2021.

Canoes were developed by cultures all over the world. Until the mid-1800s the canoe was an important means of transport for exploration and trade, and in some places is still used as such.

A canoe, in American English, is a lightweight narrow vessel, typically pointed at both ends and open on top.

In British English, the term "canoe" can also refer to a kayak, while canoes are then called Canadian or “open” canoes to distinguish them from kayaks.
