Gary McGuffin captures the excitement and pride of wife, Joanie, and daughter, Sila, 9, as they take their first strokes in their homemade kayaks. Well-known adventurers, writer/photographers and environmental activists, the McGuffins have paddled across Canada and throughout the Great Lakes. Then, early one spring, “we embarked on a different kind of adventure,” says Joanie, “a three-week project building our own Greenland-style kayaks at North House Folk School in Grand Marais, Minnesota.”
