This is a combination of Gardner's two influential books on boat making, Building Classic Small Craft, Volume 1, and More Building Classic Small Craft. Complete plans and instructions for 47 boats include an easy-to-build common punt, the wonderfully stable Peapod, four canoes, and a variety of sailing craft. His descriptions are rich in historical detail, both anecdotal and documented.

Each project has line drawings with critical measurements for each station, and additional drawings to clarify construction. Often, black-and-white photographs showing boats from the early 1900s accompany the text. Several letters and essays, from those who knew Gardner well, illuminate his character and career.

Softcover, 8 1/2" × 11", 536 pages, 2004.
