Summary
An inspirational bucket list for anyone interested in rafting, kayaking, or canoeing -- from armchair traveler to recreational paddler to hard-core white-water enthusiast. From the Penobscot to the Potomac, the New to the Suwannee, the Colorado to the Snake, America's Great River Journeys entices people to experience America from its free-flowing waterways. Vivid descriptions of our nation's fifty finest river trips are complete with stunning photos of each leg of each journey, an engaging narrative, and practical tips about the length of trips, seasonal preferences, difficulty of white water, joys of camping along the shores, availability of professional outfitters, and other details. Through beautiful photography and compelling writing, America's Great River Journeys is a celebration of the best rivers for canoeing, kayaking, and rafting -- from Alaska to Florida -- along 7,000 miles of our nation's spectacular waterways in twenty-eight states. --
