Editorial Reviews

Review

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 Community 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)

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)

From the Author

The Upper Ottawa Valley is one of Canada's most historic, and scenic, water routes. Highlighted in this handy guidebook are the wild rivers tumbling off the Canadian Shield landscape into the great valley. From Temagami in the north, to the whitewater rafting playground of Isle d'Allumette in the south, the book describes in intimate detail, the finest canoeing rivers in east-central Canada. Quebec's "Triple Play" -- the Dumoine, Noire and Coulonge Rivers, are distinguished as Canadian "classic" river adventures; fast-paced, exciting, challenging and supremely beautiful, these rivers flow through the magnificent Laurentian Mountains.

A note about all of Hap Wilson's Guidebooks:

Although these are field-friendly travel guidebooks, they are written and illustrated to charm and fascinate the couch-traveler as well. For help on selecting routes, or about current guided trips taking place in any one of these Canadian guidebook favorites, please feel free to contact the author(s) as listed with each title.

To me these books have a dual purpose... they are reminders of the adventurous spirit and really the birthright of Canadians in the canoe. They are also excellent guidebooks that are designed to supplement your planning for your canoe trip.

I bought this as a gift for my daughter who just did the coulonge. Her trip leaders had these maps as a suppliment to the topos they brought... she was excited to revisit her epic adventure through hap's book.

I recommend all of Mr Wilson's books.

I would strongly recommend anyone who's attempting to canoe the coulonge river to buy Haps book. It's very helpful in planning the trip and on the water it will help you even more. The detailed maps in the book help you to learn about upcoming rapids, waterfalls and swifts before it's too late. Unless you have someone with you who know's the river- I would rely on Haps experience. And we actually did. A very useful book and well worth every penny. It also tells you about the history of the river, which is quite interesting.
