Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"There are few books that offer as much information as this one. . . . You can kayak without knowing this information, but going beyond the recreational stage is made much easier after reading Expedition Kayaking."
--Canoe & Kayak

"Hutchinson stresses that neither age nor sex is a barrier in this sport, but planning and careful preparation are all-important. His considerable experience, the clear illustrations, and interesting passages from early kayak explorers' texts, along with a dry wit and a very personal style of writing, make this a pleasure to read."
--Library Journal

Booknews
