If
you only have one book in your paddling library,
this
is the book to own!

Eventually
you will want to paddle a river that you are not familiar with. This
book is where you start when you have questions about river length,
scenery, wildlife, directions, access points, rapids, gradient, or
other hazards. Virtually all of the rivers in Georgia have a detailed
paddling review as well as some of the more popular spots in nearby
states.

The
fact that this book has not won a Pulitzer Prize is a travesty.
Obviously the nominating committee doesn’t contain a single paddler.

I
apologize to the GCA members that I must have left off this list. My
point in listing these people who contributed is that the GCA “wrote
the book” on paddling in Georgia. Not to take anything away from
Suzanne Welander at all, but if you are looking for an expert on
paddling in Georgia, the GCA phone directory would be a good place to
start.
