Editorial Reviews

Review

"Finally, a guidebook aimed at the forgotten canoeist: families, bird watchers, solo adventurers, seniors, and average human beings who don't need to run rapids or mount an expedition to enjoy their paddling experience."
--Canoe Magazine

"I read Quiet Water cover to cover. It's packed with delicious nuggets of lore and wisdom. The writing is lively and informal¿. The Appalachian Mountain Club has outdone itself."
--Worcester Magazine

"For avid canoeists who prefer calm lakes and rivers, this is a great book, one that I wish was available for every state. The locations described are so peaceful that you tend to forget that you are in one of the most populated regions of the country."
--Travel Books Review


Beginning, intermediate, and advanced paddlers, and individuals and families who want to focus on being there instead of getting there. People who are interested in natural history, birdwatching, soft adventure, and quality outdoor experiences.

we live in broad brook, connecticut and this is the first year we've had kayaks. in the early summer we met a woman on the scantic river near the somersville dam and she recommended this book. best tip of the year. there are so many great paddles in here that you'd never know about just by looking on a map. we'd been driving around, shooting in the dark, and mostly being disappointed by what we found. every paddle we've taken out of the book has been excellent. can't recommend it highly enough.

This is an excellent book for those yakers who are looking for an escape from motor boat laden waters. It is well illustrated and has helpful tips on where to put in and what to expect as you traverse the water ways.

It is the bible for us quiet water paddlers. My only problem is that I keep loaning to friends who never seem to return it. This last order of two copies makes my fourth and fifth copies of the book...
