Perhaps the best aspect of this fine book is the author's meticulous attention to detail and the accuracy of his research. (William McLeod The Sudbury Star 2006-06-14)
Engaging and idiosyncratic... the clear pen-and-ink maps are full of details... some photographers dream of wild places and seek the way. I would recommend these books to them. (J.A. Lamont Canadian Camera 2005-01-00)
Detailed information... Hap Wilson has personally explored the rivers. (Wildlife Activist 2004-10-00)
I love his writing because he speaks to my soul... about canoeing and the magnificent outdoors we seldom pay attention to. (Joanne Bury Comunity Voices 2004-08-13)
Compiled by Hap Wilson, an outdoor writer who has more than thirty years of experience as a wilderness guide... personally documented maps... far more information than a volume size might lead the reader to expect. (Linda Turk Thunder Bay Chronicle-Journal 2004-07-04)
Sound advice on important topics... Anyone planning a canoe trip to the areas covered by Wilson will benefit greatly by reading these guidebooks, but even canoeing enthusiasts not planning on travelling to these regions by canoe will enjoy just reading them. (Glenn Perrett Cottage Times 2004-07-15)
No other Canadian River imbues such a strong mystic and culturally provocative story as the Missinaibi. A powerfully charged, undeveloped river, paddlers can follow this historic and culturally important waterway from Lake Superior to James Bay. Prior to the release of the first edition guidebook in 1994, the difficulty of the river and the inaccuracy of the topographic maps led to the death of an average of 2-3 people every year. Since the release of the guidebook there have been no fatalities on the river. The detailed rapids drawings are classified according to the International River Grading System -- as all of our books adhere to. Also included in this guidebook is the Little Missinaibi River loop route -- a must see for those interested in Native lore and history.
