    What sort of info are you seeking?

    See, for instance; "The Canoe; A History of the Craft from Panama to the Arctic", by Roberts and Shackleton (1983)

    Carlos Pedro Vairo The Yamana Canoe: The Marine Tradition of the Aborigines of Tierra del Fuego, 2007.

    Humanity's Vessel; The Art and Ecology of the Canoe;

    Indigenous Boats; Small Craft Outside the Western Tradition;

    There's also info on Caribbean (Grenada, St. Lucia, Isles des Saintes) canoes , in, "Clean, Sweet Wind; Sailing with the Last Boatmakers of the Caribbean", by Douglas C. Pyle. (1998)
