Having just paddled the Allagash Wilderness Waterway, I was expecting a pictorial review of the pristine lakes, the exciting rapids, and the meandering river by a professional. The book gives a small fraction of what makes the waterway experience so vivid, exciting, and beautiful. I found the writing a bit dull but informative, but the pictures were the real disappointment; they conveyed little of the feeling of a wild and scenic river. Chase Carry Rapids, a challenging 9 mile stretch of the Allagash is covered by one, very uninformative photo. I would not recommend this book to others.

I found the book to be much better than I expected from a descriptive text on the Allagash. The pictures and text were outstanding.
