Product Description

In the Nipigon country north of the Great Lakes a young boy carved the figure of an Indian in a canoe, christened him Paddle-to-the-Sea, and set him on a melting snow bank which the spring sun was truning into a tumbling mountain stream. Then Paddle began a journey that took him hundreds of miles from his birthplace. He escaped the jaws of a hungry sawmill and went on to see many things on his long trip through the Great Lakes and down the Saint Lawrence River--wild animals fleeing a forest fire, the wreck of a steamer caught in an icy winter storm on Lake Superior, loading and unloading at busy docks, the peacful farms bordering the Saint Lawrence. He took a dizzy plunge over Niagara Falls and managed by a miracle to survive the whirlpools. He was buffeted by many winds and currents and was helped on his way by human hands, until, at last, he reached the Atlantic and earned the right to be called a true Paddle-to-the-Sea. Recommended for ages 8 to 12.

    This is a sweet story about a Canadian Indian boy who whittles a little man in a canoe, whom he names "Paddle-to-the-Sea." The journey of the little canoe teaches a lot of geography. The book has many little details added in the margins.

    Wonderful story of an Indian boy who carves a wooden toy canoe. You follow the story of the canoe as it travels though Canada, The Great Lakes and out to sea. You also read about some problems it encounters along the way. Wonderful way to study geography and my 4th grader absolutely loved the story! Pretty pictures too.
