Overview

The Chattahoochee is a prototypical American river-from its headwaters in the Blue Ridge Mountains to where it flows into Apalachicola Bay, one of the most productive estuaries in North America. This entertaining, fact-filled guide covers the Chattahoochee's entire 500 mile course and 8,000 square mile watershed.

The guide divides the river into ten sections, each of which includes a brief natural history and information on:

  • camping, hiking, fishing, boating, and other recreational pursuits
  • bodies of water that feed into the river
  • cities and towns with river frontage
  • manmade structures such as bridges, dams, and historic ruins
  • environmental threats and preservation efforts

Entertaining sidebars throughout highlight the people, history, culture, wildlife, and geography of the entire river valley. Understand the "Hooch," say those dedicated to its conservation, and you will know more about all of our country's waterways. This guide is the place to begin.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"White water rapids, scenic lakes, the southern-most trout hatchery in the United States. An urban river unmatched by any other city anywhere. Indian history, tupelo honey and a great estuary that produces some of the best oysters in the world. The Chattahoochee River has it all. It is the most symbolic of American rivers. This detailed guide book is your introduction to this great liquid treasure. Hike it, canoe it, explore its tributaries, old mill sites and cypress swamps. You will never see the Chattahoochee—or any river—the same way again."—Jane Fonda

"The Chattahoochee is one of America's most beautiful rivers. It is also one of its most endangered. This guidebook is full of great how-to, where-to information on boating, fishing and hiking opportunities which are close to home. This book will help us understand the river's past and protect its future."—Rand Wentworth, Trust for Public Land

"The Chattahoochee River is an urban refuge for boating, hiking and fishing in the Atlanta area, as well as a lifeline of drinking water for the three states it touches on its route to the Gulf of Mexico. Authors Fred Brown and Sherri Smith have put together an entertaining guidebook that knits together the recreational value of the river while tracing its history and ecological importance. This detailed Riverkeeper Guidebook shows the importance of the Chattahoochee to the Southeast and how we can help preserve and protect its future."—Newt Gingrich

"Goes beyond the bounds of a mere guidebook . . . While the authors praise the beauty and history of the river, they don't ignore its darker side—the massive amounts of pollution that spew into the river from sewers, factories, development and other sources. Even if you never intend to dip a canoe paddle into the Chattahoochee, this book can be enjoyable and informative reading, especially if you want to learn more about one of Georgia's most vital natural assets."—Charles Seabrook, Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"As suitable for armchair browsing as it will be for getting from A to B along the river's more than 500-mile course. . . . The book is engagingly written and packed with lore, maps and useful information. . . . I like this book immensely. It makes me want to take a winter walk along the riverbank in South Georgia, or maybe drive to the headwaters near Brasstown Bald. It also makes me hope that someday the Chattahoochee below Atlanta will be clean again."—Colin Campbell, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
