New home sales: 'Really good news'

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Sales of newly constructed single-family homes spiked 11% in June to an annualized rate of 384,000 homes, according to a report released Monday.

The gain over May was much greater than expected. A consensus of housing industry analysts had forecast seasonally adjusted sales of 352,000, according to Breifing.com.

However, sales are still 21% below the levels of a year ago, when new homes sold in June at an annualized rate of 488,000, according to the report released by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Four years ago, during the height of the housing boom, the sales rate for June was 1,374,000, nearly three-and-a-half times higher than last month.

Still, the report was very positive, according to Peter Morici, an economics professor at the University of Maryland who had forecast June sales to be at the 350,000 level. "That is really good news. Considering what's going on in existing home sales, with all the foreclosure activity sending down home prices, for new homes to jump like that is a good indicator that the economy is bottoming out."

Canoes


Choose Your Activity
Golf Hiking Skiing Water Sports
Games Fishing Exploring Cycling

Canoes are a fantastic investment for the fun you get out of them. If you take care of them, they'll last for decades, and no matter where you go, it's always a different experience. On a lake, you'll want to make sure you have a good keel (the keel is the ridge that runs along the center line on the bottom of your canoe), so you can paddle in a steady direction when the wind blows up. You'll also want some stability, which mean a wider beam. If you have a bothersome back, you'll want a backrest for the seating, or you can get sore pretty quickly.

If you plan to use your canoe on both lakes and rivers, it's wise to have a smaller keel so you can turn more quickly on the rivers. On the other hand, if whitewater's your thrill, you're probably best off to get two different canoes. In whitewater, ABS is better, and no keel at all will help you to turn quickly when you need to. As a rule of thumb, get a more pronounced keel for slower water, and a smaller keel or no keel at all for fast water and rapids. Fiberglass is great for riffles and flatwater rivers, and in ponds or lakes. ABS is recommended rocky rivers, whitewater and rapids.

Love Is a Canoe

Love Is a Canoe

$16.45

Peter Hermanis something of a folk hero. "Marriage Is a Canoe," his legendary, decades-old book on love and relationships, has won the hearts of hope-ful romantics and desperate cynics alike. He and his beloved wife lived a relatively peaceful life in upstate New York. But now it's 2010, and Peter's wife has just died. Completely lost, he passes the time with a woman he admires but doesn't love-and he begins to look back through the pages of his book and question hom-ilies such as: "A good marriage is a canoe-it needs care and isn't meant to hold too much-no more than two adults and a few kids." It's advice he has famously doled out for decades. But what is it worth? Then Peter receives a call from Stella Petrovic, an ambitious young editor who wants to celebrate the fif-tieth anniversary of "Marriage Is a Canoe "with a contest for struggling couples. The prize? An afternoon with Peter and a chance to save their relationship. The contest ensnares its creator in the largely opaque politics of her publishing house while it intro-duces the reader to couples in various states of distress, including a shy thirtysomething Brooklynite and her charismatic and entrepreneurial husband, who may just be a bit too charismatic for the good of their marriage. There's the middle-aged publisher whose im-posing manner has managed to impose loneliness on her for longer than she cares to admit. And then there is Peter, who must discover what he "meant "when he wrote "Marriage Is a Canoe "if he is going to help the contest's winners and find a way to love again. In "Love Is a Canoe," Ben Schrank delivers a smart, funny, romantic, and hugely satisfying novel about the fragility of marriage and the difficulty of repairing the damage when well-intentioned people forget how to be good to each other.

Canoe Paddles: A Complete Guide to Making Your Own

Canoe Paddles: A Complete Guide to Making Your Own

$15.78

Canoeists are increasingly discovering the deep satisfaction in creating their own equipment rather than adapting to the generic standards of boats and paddles available through retailers. Indeed, interest in making paddles and canoes is at an all-time high with recreational boaters. For the how-to beginner, a paddle represents the perfect challenge, both finite and functional. For the skilled woodworker, the opportunity to experiment with design and technique and thereby create a tailor-made product that perfectly suits a paddler's needs is a dream come true. In Canoe Paddles: A Complete Guide to Making Your Own, longtime canoeist and woodworker Graham Warren presents detailed blueprints for making paddles that you will cherish and use with confidence. From his insightful look at the way a paddle works when it meets the water through the selection of the best woods, adhesives and tools, Warren takes the reader on a veritable paddlemaking odyssey. You will learn how to make a paddle with a single blade, a bent shaft or double blades; how best to protect a paddle with oil or varnish; what to look for when test-driving your paddle; how to decorate it; and how to care for and repair it. Warren also includes an appreciation of the evolution of the paddle, and a special chapter by renowned canoe-building teacher David Gidmark celebrates paddlemaking in the native tradition. Canoe Paddles is thoroughly illustrated with photographs and drawings.

Bill Reid and the Haida Canoe

Bill Reid and the Haida Canoe

$19.98

Northwest Coast peoples were maritime engineers who mastered the art of building dugout canoes from gigantic red cedars, using only tools made from bone, stone, and wood. Ubiquitous, these elegant craft were used for everyday and ceremonial purposes, for fishing, hunting and trading, for feasting and potlatching, and in warfare-they were the keys that unlocked the treasure chest of the North Pacific. "Bill Reid and the Haida Canoe" tells the story of the Northwest Canoe from its zenith in pre-contact times, through its decline in the late nineteenth century, to its revival in "Lootaas (Wave Eater)" which Bill Reid built for Expo '86, to its culmination with the Tribal Canoe Journeys of the twenty-first century and "The Spirit of Haida Gwaii" sculptures. Bill Reid expressed awe for the traditional Haida canoe and what it represents visually, symbolically, and culturally. In his words, "Western art starts with the figure-West Coast Indian art starts with the canoe." The successive journeys of "Lootaas" were significant stages in Bill Reid's work, which culminated with the iconic sculpture "The Spirit of Haida Gwaii," a monumental bronze canoe filled to overflowing with creatures of Haida mythology (currently featured on the Canadian twenty-dollar bill). As a final creative act Bill Reid requested that, at the end of his life, his ashes be transported in "Lootaas" paddled by a crew of his Haida friends and relatives to Tanu, his grandmother's village in Gwaii Haanas. The story is told through writings and artworks by Bill Reid, vivid photographs by Phillip Hersee, Ulli Steltzer, Robert Semeniuk and others, texts by James Raffan, Martine J. Reid, and Mike Robinson and first-hand accounts by First Nations paddlers. "Bill Reid and the Haida Canoe" is a companion book to the Bill Reid and the Haida Canoe exhibition mounted by the Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art and touring to the Canadian Canoe Museum in Peterborough, Ontario.

Two Coots in a Canoe: An Unusual Story of Friendship

$15.31

A journey of whim, humor, and self-discovery along the Connecticut River When retired CEO Ramsay Peard, 61, called his old friend David Morine, 59, and asked the longtime conservationist if he wanted to canoe the Connecticut River, Morine said he'd do it under one condition: no camping. "We'll rely on the kindness of strangers." And that's what they did. Mooching their way down the river and staying with strangers every night, Morine and Peard got an inside look at such issues as the demise of farming, the loss of manufacturing, gay rights, and Wal-Mart versus Main Street, and they were able to delve deep into the lives of complete strangers. But Morine soon realized the one life he never dug into was Peard's. After spending a month with him in a canoe, he had no idea that his friend's innermost thoughts had taken a fateful course. Written in the tradition of Bill Bryson's "A Walk in the Woods, "this book will be treasured by conservationists, canoeists, and old friends still seeking a thrill. Everyone else will be delightfully entertained.

Bark Canoes: The Art and Obsession of Tappan Adney

Bark Canoes: The Art and Obsession of Tappan Adney

$19.98

The definitive reference to indigenous peoples' watercraft around the world." Tappan Adney (1868-1950) was an artist, writer, ethnographer, historian and modelmaker of unparalleled ability. He tirelessly documented the cultures and languages of vanishing native cultures. His most enduring legacy is the extraordinary 110 birchbark canoe models he handbuilt to exacting standards. The models, now held at The Mariners' Museum in Newport News, Virginia, were built to ensure future canoe builders had exact reproductions for reference. These historically accurate, 1:5 scale models were meticulously researched, and traditionally constructed using the identical materials of the originals. Many are based on canoes that were the last example of their type. Before such a canoe disintegrated, Adney measured and recorded its dimensions, consulted with native builders and studied historical photographs and paintings. The canoe models are organized into eight distinct groups: Maritimes Eastern Woodland Northwest Lower British Columbia Fur Trade Amur Valley Asia South America. Each canoe model is beautifully photographed and accompanied by captions that outline the craft's origins, uses and technical details. Adney's amazing technical drawings for the models are also included. An extensive introduction covers Adney's life and provides information about native model builders, canoe decoration and fur trade heraldry. "Bark Canoes" is the definitive reference to indigenous - and ingenious - watercraft used around the world.

The Survival of the Bark Canoe

The Survival of the Bark Canoe

In Greenville, New Hampshire, a small town in the southern part of the state, Henri Vaillancourt makes birch-bark canoes in the same manner and with the same tools that the Indians used. "The Survival of the Bark Canoe "is the story of this ancient craft and of a 150-mile trip through the Maine woods in those graceful survivors of a prehistoric technology. It is a book squarely in the tradition of one written by the first tourist in these woods, Henry David Thoreau, whose "The Maine Woods "recounts similar journeys in similar vessel. As McPhee describes the expedition he made with Vaillancourt, he also traces the evolution of the bark canoe, from its beginnings through the development of the huge canoes used by the fur traders of the Canadian North Woods, where the bark canoe played the key role in opening up the wilderness. He discusses as well the differing types of bark canoes, whose construction varied from tribe to tribe, according to custom and available materials. In a style as pure and as effortless as the waters of Maine and the glide of a canoe, John McPhee has written one of his most fascinating books, one in which his talents as a journalist are on brilliant display.
