Press and Reviews: The Canadian Canoe Company, by Ken Brown

"This is the book of the season for anyone interested in Peterborough history, or local sports, or canoes. The book matured over 15 years, and the wait has been worthwhile." Elwood Jones, "Paddle through canoe’s past: History of Canadian Canoe Co. touches on entire cycle of a famous local industry," Peterborough Examiner, 5 November 2011, A5.

"Just in time for Christmas! The Canadian Canoe Company and the Early Peterborough Canoe Factories by Ken Brown is a must-have for any canoe historian’s library." Wooden Canoe Heritage Association

"The history of the canoe building companies that were a significant part of the economic life of Peterborough, Ontario, for more than one hundred years is as rich and tangled a story as you’re likely to find in Canadian business history.... It is also a complicated story, and those who are interested in canoeing history, Canadian history, Canadian business history and the story of how the city of Peterborough, Ontario came to be synonymous around the world with the canoe will have a much easier time figuring it out after they have read Peterborough author Ken Brown’s new book: The Canadian Canoe Company & the Early Peterborough Canoe Factories." From Playing With Boats, a blog by John Summers of the Canadian Canoe Museum
