Build a Wee Lassie Canoe with Larry Benjamin and Marc Ornstein. #227-0619. 12 Days.

The original “Wee Lassie” was a lapstrake-built open cedar canoe made in 1863 by J. Henry Rushton, of Canton, NY. Rushton was one of the most famous canoe builders of his era. George Washington Sears, who wrote of his adventures under his pen name of “Nessmuk” as he recorded his paddling adventures throughout the Adirondacks, popularized these small, finely crafted canoes. Come spend 12 wonderful days at AFS building your own Wee Lassie.
