Lots of rivers but only general info
Don't buy this book thinking you won't need another resource to run a particular river. It offers only a taste into each of these rivers.
An Inspired Book
This is a surprizingly good book.It not only renders a service to river runners but more im portantly it is an inspired attempt to be of service to the rivers themselves. Besides the useful technical imformation on the howand where of kayaking and boating it is full of interesting and poeticdetails about the character of the regions through which the rivers flow. I have used it in teaching geography to children and adults.As an activeConservationist and teacher I believe this book deserves a spot on many areference shelf in many a library and bookcase.
