A graceful primer on life and how to sail through it with character,
easy grace, and personal priorities all in a row.Kirkus Reviews

Robb White knows everything there is to know about getting on the water and staying
there as long as you possibly can. While still a young boy, he built his first boat, hewn from
the tin roof of an abandoned chicken coop. In How to Build a Tin Canoe, this Southern
raconteur and self-taught, expert wooden-boat builder offers a wryly humorous journey
through a life lived on the water and the lessons learned along the way.

Robb White is the owner and proprietor of the boat-building company Robb White & Sons. A regular contributor to the publications WoodenBoat and Messing About in Boats, he is widely regarded for his boat knowledge and his working theory of life. He splits his time between southern Georgia and Florida's Apalachee Bay.
