I like the description on the first book you mentioned. It sounds pretty much like what I was looking for. The others sound like they're more some camping tips mixed in with a basic canoeing instruction primer. I don't really need any canoeing instruction as far as that goes, more something that would talk more about camping logistics and such. I think I'll probably go ahead and pick up a copy of that first book. Thanks for the suggestions.
