Anyone intimidated by river paddling or simply looking for a relaxing rather than hair-raising route will find 50 beautiful flatwater and class 1 and 2 whitewater trips in this thorough guide. Scattered throughout the inland Northwest and southeastern British Columbia, all the routes are ideal for beginning and intermediate paddlers as well as families who want to introduce their children to the rivers.

The guide also includes a listing of resources for current conditions that paddlers should consult before departure.

Editorial Reviews

Spokesman-Review
Fills a long-vacant niche for local paddlers. Guidebooks about frothing whitewater are common. River trips for mere mortals are not widely described in guidebooks. Until now.
Sea and Kayak magazine
Landers and Hansen avoid the snags that capsize all too many paddling guidebooks. They write with humor and comfortable informality. Information is organized to highlight the essentials ... Paddle Routes of the Inland Northwest is full of piquant local lore and grounded in a responsible conservation ethic.
