Overview

The Alaska River Guide is the premier guide to Alaskan paddling. It combines detailed river maps, photogrphs, and crucial at-a-glance information to provide you with the knowledge needed to plan a successful Alaska river trip.

The book also highlights: cautions and river hazards, prime paddling season, directions to river-access points, summaries of fish and wildlife.

The rich tapestry of Alaska is threaded together by 365,000 miles of waterways, from cascading mountain streams to meandering valley rivers, from the meltwaters of glaciers to broad rivers that empty into the sea. These waterways run deep in the fabric of Alaskan life, providing means of communication, nutrition, and transport for plants, animals, and people. The Alaska River Guide provides enough information to help you prepare for your trip without spoiling the wonders and discoveries waiting for you out on the water.
