    Exploring Coastal Mississippi

    This is a very comprehensive guidebook which fills a great need in the outdoors market, including full descriptions of the state's coastal streams and bays and the offshore islands. The author's numerous canoeing, kayaking and sailing trips provide experience-driven recommendations for navigation, camping, and exploring. There is much about the history of the region, including maps and photographs. Williams shares interesting stories to enrich his authoritative guidebook, which is destined to become a classic.
