Editorial Reviews

Bloomsbury Review
"[Hay's] descriptions are clear and informative, highlighting both the beautiful — spectacular waterfalls in the gorge — and the treacherous — areas of strong currents and constant wind chop. Hay's deep respect and affection for the river are evident throughout his writing ... [A] detailed, user-friendly handbook for exploring the lower Columbia river."
—Susan Lacer, Bloomsbury Review, May 2005
The San Francisco Chronicle
"Hay's ... introduces not only water-traveling explorers, but also motorists, bicyclists and hikers, to the landscapes and history of the lower Columbia."

San Francisco Chronicle, April 24, 2004

Oregonian
"The Lewis and Clark Columbia River Water Trail ... is packed with stories about Southwest Washington geography and history ... [and] filled with obscure historical tidbits ... Hays offers the expert view of a paddler who has explored every ripple of the river."

—Dean Baker, Oregonian, March 29, 2004

Meet the Author

Keith G. Hay has been an avid outdoorsman and kayaker throughout his long career in wildlife ecology and conservation. His interest in the Lewis and Clark expedition began in 1963 when he joined the U.S. Bureau of Outdoor Recreation and worked with the first national Lewis and Clark Trail Commission. In 1966 he received the commission's Jefferson Peace Medal for his two-year study of the expedition's route, and co-authored The Lewis and Clark Trail: A Proposal for Development, which recommended a plan for creating and preserving a recreational ribbon along the eleven-state trail. Keith is a founder and past president of the Oregon Chapter of the National Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation, vice-president of the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial Oregon, and a founder and national advocate for the American Greenways Program.
