Format: Paperback
Provides all the information needed for brief or extended solo trips in Glacier Bay National Park. Includes excellent summaries of a dozen multi-day trips including trip highlights, photos, distances, ratings of difficulty, likely hazards, hints for locating campsites and maps suitable for scoping your trip. Also includes additional resources you may need in the appendix along with phone numbers. The book gave me the courage and information I needed for my first long, solo trip in a wilderness area. An excellent addition to my library.

Interestingly written and very informative. His maps are rather crude but used with a NOAA map (17318, 17318a, 17318b) they are excellent guides to camping sites, points of interest, and dangerous currents. 6 of us did a self-guided 115 mile trip over 11 days based on this book. Excellent description of routes almost mile by mile. A must buy if you are going to do any lengthy trip and are trying to minimize surprises.

This is a paddling guide for one of the best kayak adventure destinations on the planet. It was copyrighted in 1998 but it is by no means outdated. I could be forgiven for the pun if I said the information and the conditions described in the book change at a glacial pace. If you're planning to paddle Glacier Bay, this book should be on your essentials list, if for no reason other than the detailed, hand-drawn maps that illustrate the location of campsites. The information is presented in the form of 12 multi day trips which include all the major glaciers and inlets, along with useful information about transportation in and around Glacier Bay National Park, camping there, bears, weather, history, plants, insects and related matters. It is readable as a paddle guide, meaning you want to briefly review it at home, then take it with you. I bought my copy in "good" condition, according to the seller, but my copy looks brand new in perfect condition except for the yellowing of pages that comes 15 years after publication, a condition which does not detract from its usefulness. If you're paddling Glacier Bay, this guide is priceless in any condition, and what copies remain should be reserved for paddlers actually going there.

The trip summary was good but I was expecting more details on the trip reports and other options for kayaking in the west arm, overall still useful but most of the information can be found via google
