"Here, finally, is the classic live action film version of "Paddle To The Sea" - shown on Youtube in 3 parts. Paddle To The Sea was filmed by Bill Mason in 1966, and was inspired by the brilliant Children's Book of the same title, written in 1941 by H. C. Holling.
The 1966 film version seen here was eventually nominated for an Academy Award two years later in 1968, for Best Short Film, because it was so beautifully done by the director - Canadian naturalist, master canoeist, artist and filmmaker Bill Mason.
Bill personally hand-carved from wood, in meticulous detail very faithful to the book illustrations, the beautiful wooden "Paddle" models seen in the film.
This story (both book and film version) has been loved by generations of school children for decades as they learn about the history of the Great Lakes region of North America while they follow the exciting adventures of a brave toy Wooden Indian in his tiny but sturdy Canoe (hand carved by a Native Canadian boy from Nipigon Country)."
