Canoe Errant, Canoe Errant On The Nile, Canoe Errant On The Mississippi, Canoe to Mandalay, Canoe in Australia. - Major R. Raven-Hart

1935 to 1948 - Various, Various - First editions, Canoe Errant is ‘the first of Major Raven-Hart’s books on his canoe trips throughout the world. He had survived World War I with impaired health, had little money, and wished to see Europe, especially those parts of it not yet spoiled by tourists. One day in 1928 he saw two German’s assembling and launching a folding canoe on the Seine below his home in Herblay. After chatting with them, he bought one, named her Couer Fidele (the family motto), made some experimental trips, and, in 1930, began serious voyaging. He tells of cruises in the spring, summer and autumn of each year through 1934. By the latter year, having travelled many of the rivers of France and Germany, he went down the Danube to Budapest and then cruised Dalmatian waters.

These are the first five books by Major Raven-Hart taking him canoeing across the world, from the Irrawaddy to the Murrumbidgee, the Mississippi to the Wadi Halfa. His books contain adventures, views on customs and languages and historical insights throughout.
