Eastern Arctic Kayaks

History, Design, Technique

John D. Heath

John Heath (1923 - 2003) believed that modern recreational kayakers could learn a great deal from the inventors of the kayak. His fascination with history and design led him to museums throughout Europe, Greenland, and North America, where he conducted research on all aspects of kayak structure and technique. Mr. Heath published countless articles in American White Water and Sea Kayaker and worked throughout his life to preserve knowledge of the traditional designs and techniques used by arctic kayakers.
