Kayak and Land Journeys in Ainu Mosir takes the reader into Japan's northernmost island, Hokkaido. The native inhabitants called this island Ainu Mosir, which means People of the Quiet Land. Guy de la Rupelle after having been to Hokkaido several times by motorcycle and meeting furtively these Ainu decides to take a longer look at who they are exactly and their current situation. To give a sense of purpose to his journey he packs two folding kayaks in his car, all his camping gear and spends six weeks meeting as many Ainu as he can, camps and paddles in the lakes, rivers and along the coastline of this amazing island, certainly the last wilderness left in Japan. It has been said that a good travel book is one in which the reader will discover new things as he travels with the writer. This is certainly the case. The reader will get a better sense of who the Ainu are through their voices as well as read about a part of Japan seldom written about by Westerners.

Fatal Accident Data was used to identify the major causes of fatalities resulting from the use of canoes, kayaks, and inflatable craft. Areas of potential safety enhancement were evaluated using the available data. PFD availability and wear appear to be areas that need to be further evaluated to develop safety programs to reduce the number of fatalities in canoes and inflatables. Increased vessel flotation appears to be a potential safety enhancement concept for canoes but not for inflatables. Data for kayaks was too limited to form any conclusions. (Author).
