Engaging and idiosyncratic... the clear pen-and-ink maps are full of details... some photographers dream of wild places and seek the way. I would recommend these books to them.-- (01/01/2005)
Detailed information... Hap Wilson has personally explored the rivers.-- (10/01/2004)
I love his writing because he speaks to my soul...about canoeing and the magnificent outdoors we seldom pay attention to.-- (08/13/2004)
Compiled by Hap Wilson, an outdoor writer who has more than thirty years of experience as a wilderness guide... personally documented maps... far more information than a volume size might lead the reader to expect.-- (07/04/2004)
Sound advice on important topics... Anyone planning a canoe trip to the areas covered by Wilson will benefit greatly by reading these guidebooks, but even canoeing enthusiasts not planning on travelling to these regions by canoe will enjoy just reading them.-- (07/15/2004)
