    Wow! All in one book.

    In Shari Aber's guide you discover a personal odyssey combined with extraordinarily complete information on kayaking on the rivers, ponds, and lakes in this region of New York. This book is formatted to allow you to plan your trip from your easy chair. Every area in six counties is mapped for you. Each entry includes route, mileage, difficulty level 'from easy to challenging', setting, hazards, remarks and a narrative of the author's kayak journey in that specific spot. She also includes types of kayaks, necessary supplies, and helpful web sites. The appendices expand your knowledge of local events and tours and include a list of outfitters. Land directions get you right to the easiest spot for your excursion to begin. Each entry closes with 'The Paddle,' the author's description of her voyage on the waters described. Her personal tales include local history and her unique observations on the water and natural environs. Ms. Aber's interest in the birds, especially herons, hawks, and eagles in each district is evident. Photographs of the bodies of water and the local inhabitants help in the trip planning, for we all know we want to go where we just might see otters and muskrats and the baby deer hiding in the weeds at the water's edge. This is not just a guide to where and how. It is a call to adventure and the pleasures of becoming a part of 'the harmony of seemingly disparate forces.'
