Editorial Reviews

Great Lakes Cruiser
The Cruising Guide to New York Waterways and Lake Champlain by chris Brown is one of the most complete boating guides to the eatern waterways I have ever seen...this is a top-notch, well-conceived and wonderfully produced book."
Library Journal
In this latest addition to Pelican's cruising guide series--featuring ratings of 365 places (ports of call, quiet anchorages, and marinas)--listings note storm protection, scenery, comfort features, repair facilities, restaurants, and other items of interest to serious cruisers. Embedding key nautical information in a more traditional format, this guidebook is clear, concise, and current. Very good historical overviews accompany tips on shore trips, restaurants, and local transportation. Arranged geographically, the guide moves from New York harbor up the Hudson River through Lake Champlain. It also travels down the St. Lawrence River to lakes Ontario and Erie before following the Erie Canal back to the Hudson. Authoritative, firsthand text by Brown, a boating expert, coupled with enticing photos and maps recommend this guide to regional collections.--Megan S. Farrell, Dupre Lib., Univ. of Southwestern Louisiana, Lafayette
