Summary, etc.: While still a young boy, Robb White built his first boat, hewn from the tin roof of an abandoned chicken coop in the back yard. Today, without any formal training, White constructs some of the most sought-after wooden boats around. In How to Build a Tin Canoe, this Southern raconteur and self-taught, expert wooden-boat builder recounts tall tales of a life lived on the water, from his childhood exploring the Gulf of Mexico to growing up-or not really growing up-to share his accrued wisdom with others. With wry humor, he offers such life lessons as how to survive rampaging monkeys and how to stop a turtle from eating your boat. Both wise and entertaining, How to Build a Tin Canoe will find a place on the shelves of all readers who love fishing, boating, and great storytelling.
