Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Why anyone with an ounce of brains would want to paddle a canoe or kayak through the Everglades escapes this reviewer. Molloy makes it very clear that alligators slither around, weird things come flying out of the trees, tides strand you on mud flats, and geographic names such as Shark Point and Graveyard Creek make you wonder about their origins. But Molloy's relaxed prose makes all doubts vanish. Molloy has floated his boats around most of the United States and has written a number of books about his experiences. Here, his writing style is both authoritative and enticing; he can almost make you want to drift about in clouds of mosquitoes and no-see-ums. He offers important information for boaters tidal activity, campsites, routes to avoid, what to pack, wind challenges, approximate paddling time, and much more and includes detailed maps that will be of immense value to anyone venturing out into this intimidating environment. Definitely of importance to all Southeastern public libraries, this guide should also be considered by all for its comprehensiveness, attention to detail, and clarity.--Joseph L.
