Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Just a note to say thanks. I purchased your Allagash Guide package last year and just got back from my first AWW trip. Your guide was indispensable and was referenced throughout the trip. We started at Chamberlain Bridge and ended in Allagash Village. We used your recommendation for shuttle service and found Norman to be accommodating and efficient. I would definitely recommend your book to anyone planning to do the trip.
