1. "Birch Bark Canoe"
As far as Ray is concerned the birch bark canoe is the best vessel man has ever created. Ray has always wanted to construct one and in this programme he works with Algonquin canoe maker Pinock Smith, one of the few people left who know how to craft them using traditional methods.
