The Coracle: One Man in a Tub

Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
My introduction to the coracle was not the most promising, I grant you, just a joke email from a bored colleague. But, apparently, it was all I needed. Because, it’s not just racing down a river in a glorified snow sled, shield, or basket, but a journey through such wild territories as Welsh Indians, cadavers, poaching, and sheep wrasslin’, just to name a few.

I love well-constructed, researched, written and illustrated books and "The Coracle: One Man in a Tub" fits that description superbly.

The book is part of a project "Fast Tracks to Heritage Craft" an effort to save lost crafts or tradecrafts.

I swooned over the story as told through historical references to small skin boats found in Wales and around the world. In fact, I had not heard of the story of the possibility that Prince Madog, a Welshman, traveled to North America in a Coracle well before Columbus and landed in Alabama.

The book is full of amazing stories and facts, and is full of great illustrations.

I appreciated the depth of the research involved and also the lists of references.

This book is not only interesting, it's fun.

What a charming book on coracles. I had been researching them for a while now and I was thrilled to find such a nifty book, that combines the history of the coracle and practical knowledge. I can't wait until I have my own.
