“The Canoes of the natives inhabiting the lower portion of the
Columbia River are remarkably neat light and well addapted for riding high waves. I have seen the natives near the coast riding waves in these canoes with safety and apparently without
concern where I should have thought it impossible for any vessel
of the same size to lived a minute. ”Wm. Clark - February 1, 1806“The Canoes of the natives inhabiting the lower portion of the Columbia River are remarkably neat light and well addapted for riding high waves.
