Editorial Reviews

Wildlife Activist
Detailed information... Hap Wilson has personally explored the rivers.
Thunder Bay Chronicle-Journal - Linda Turk
Compiled by Hap Wilson, an outdoor writer who has more than thirty years of experience as a wilderness guide... personally documented maps... far more information than a volume size might lead the reader to expect.
Cottage Times - Glenn Perrett
Sound advice on important topics... Anyone planning a canoe trip to the areas covered by Wilson will benefit greatly by reading these guidebooks, but even canoeing enthusiasts not planning on travelling to these regions by canoe will enjoy just reading them.
Canadian Camera - J.A. Lamont
Engaging and idiosyncratic... the clear pen-and-ink maps are full of details... some photographers dream of wild places and seek the way. I would recommend these books to them.
