Editorial Reviews

Review

“… concise descriptions of take-outs and put-ins, water gauges, rapid class, level and gradient… Ocala Star Banner

“The waterways of the Sunshine State have never had a better paddling advocate. …most important distinction of this new publication is its maps... clearly superior to those found in most other guidebooks.”

More About the Author

Johnny Molloy is a self-employed outdoor writer based in Johnson City, Tennessee. A Christian -- member of First Presbyterian Church, native Tennessean and free-market capitalist, he was born in Memphis and moved to Knoxville in 1980 to attend the University of Tennessee. It was in Knoxville where he developed his love of the natural world that has since become the primary focus of his life.
It all started on a backpacking foray into the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. That first trip, though a disaster, unleashed an innate love of the outdoors that has led to his averaging over 120 nights in the wild per year, over the past 25 years, backpacking and canoe camping throughout our country. Specifically, he has spent over 750 nights in the Smokies alone, where he cultivated his woodsmanship and expertise on those lofty mountains.
In 1987, after graduating from the University of Tennessee with a degree in Economics, he continued to spend an ever increasing time in the natural places, becoming more skilled in a variety of environments. Friends enjoyed his adventure stories, one even suggested he write a book. Soon he was parlaying his love of the outdoors into an occupation.
The results of his efforts are 45 books, including more in the works. Johnny also continually works on revising and updating his guides. Many are in their 4th or 5th edition. Molloy has also written numerous articles for magazines such as Backpacker and Sea Kayaker, and for Web sites, such as Away.com.
He also is a columnist and feature writer for his hometown newspaper, the Johnson City Press. He continues to write to this day and travel extensively to all four corners of the United States endeavoring in a variety of outdoor pursuits.

This is a good guide packed full with good info. You are going to need to buy a DeLorme atlas for Florida along with it. The maps in the book are pretty scant.

If you're thinking about exploring Florida's waters on a paddle craft, this book is a must have. It is very well written and has tons of useful information. It covers everything from getting there to what outfitter services operate in the areas you are or are intending to paddlie. The book provides very accurate mileage and landmarks for gauging distance while on the water. In addition, the book provides very good maps of all the areas covered. If you want more detailed maps, go to google earth and get aerial shots. All in all, I strongly recommend this book which is why I gave it five stars. Thanks Johnny Molloy for another great book.

Very interested in paddling some of Florida's spring fed creeks, one of which was the Wakualla. I was unware that the best stretch of this river was not open to canoes in the state park area. Thanks to this book, I saved a tank of gas and a bunch of frustration from a trip I had begin planning a week or two earlier. It is always best to consult with the locals but this book is the next best thing and well worth its price.

Good resource for anyone paddling in Florida but some of the information is dated concerning put-ins and take-outs. I would recommend it.

The content is excellent, but I cannot recommend this as an e-book. It's supposed to be a guide, region-by-region, to the rivers and waterways in Florida. However, there is no Table of Contents, nor any other way to navigate to specific regions or waterways. Whoever converted this to an e-text did a lousy job. Save your money. Buy this one in print. I returned mine for a refund.

Most travel adventure books read like they have been prepared by the Chamber of Commerce, all glitz and no gravity. This book, on the other hand, was cram full of useful and hard to find information, which no one could provide who had not experienced it personally. My wife and I are taking the advice offered and using this as a valuable resource when planning our excursions.

This book is ok/average....it will get you to the launch site. It is a rather borish read. Wish the author would take the reader with him while paddling a particular waterway. This book is mostly a ' how to get there' information book rather than a detailed map(s),campsite amenities, flora/ fauna,history of the area book....
