    A Great Resource and Very Accurate Info

    This book is a must for flat-water paddlers. We purchased our kayaks last summer (2011) and immediately began looking for local waterways to paddle. I checked out every paddling book our library system had and this was by far the most current and applicable for flat water, so I bought a copy. Before every trip I photocopy the pages that apply and take them along in a zip-lock bag to refer to throughout the paddle. The maps are detailed enough so that there are no surprises while paddling, but simply drawn without a lot of clutter. Just be sure you are purchasing the most current printing, as conditions do change with time.
