Leaving Tracks: A Maine Tradition | Brian & Edmund Theriault


This book shows how my dad and I select the ash tree in the woods, process cow hides, shape the wood into frames, and make snowshoe molds. We describe the tools and show diagrams with measurements on how to weave traditional snowshoes. By putting a piece of rawhide and two sticks together, you get transportation. We call our snowshoes usable art.

For father and son Brian J. and Edmond Theriault, making snowshoes has been a four-decade passion that has taken them from novices to world-class craftsmen. However, fearing that the art may be dying out among the wider population, the duo have written a book to help anyone create their own traditional snowshoes with relative ease.
