Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Quiet water is something special - it offers adventure and enjoyment for paddlers of all ages and levels of ability. Distinctly different from the rush of whitewater canoeing, quiet-water paddling is more reflective, offering family and friends the chance to share a nature walk on water - to see wildlife close up, enjoy the turn of the seasons, take in peaceful surroundings, and investigate the riches of life in and around freshwater lakes and ponds. In this title you will find complete how-to and where-to information for 78 quiet water destinations with detailed descriptions of each lake and pond, with maps, photographs, paddling routes, and a summary of the natural world in and around the water. Information includes: permits needed for restricted lakes, fishing and seasonal highlights; complete driving, parking and canoe put-in directions; local picnicking, camping, and lodging; safety and equipment tips; illustrated in-depth nature essays on selected Maine wildlife. Alex Wilson has spent four years investigating New England's quiet waters for the Appalachian Mountain Club.

Format: Paperback
This book is an absolute neccessity for anyone planning to do extensive flatwater paddling in Maine. The book divides maine into regions and then gives detailed descriptions of the most choice paddling spots in those regions. Each overall description entails a map of the lake, general decription of the lake (scenery,fish species,things to look for etc.), campsite reservation numbers if neccesary, and most important DETAILED DIRECTIONS. Unless you are confining your paddling to the southern region, most of the lakes will require driving on winding dirt logging roads that can confuse even the most seasoned forester(I know I was one). However with this book, I was able to find the put in with ease every time. Happy Paddling!
