Paddle To The Sea



http://www.nfb.ca/film/paddle_to_the_sea/


A New Discovery.  Thank you Jeff! 
Bill Mason's film based on Holling Clancy Holling's classic book,
Paddle to the Sea is available online (free). Made available through the National Film Board of Canada.
It's a wonderful book about imagination and adventure...and how if you believe in something it can happen.  A small kayak (okay, canoe - but this is the only weak point of the book :) is carved by a young Indian boy and makes a journey from Lake Superior to the Atlantic Ocean - I think it probably happened.....

It's such a wonderful story. I'm happy that you learned about the film. Hard to believe it was released 49 years ago already...

Wow. 49 years ago? It's hard to believe I missed it for so long...

I keep playing it so I can hear the ocean. :)
