More About the Author

Jerry Hay has been exploring rivers for many years. He grew up along the Wabash River in Indiana where his fascination and love of rivers began. He has traveled the entire length of the Wabash and White Rivers by canoe and power boat. During those journeys he kept journals and drew river maps. This information, along with scouting the rivers by land and air, have provided a wealth of information that can be found in his guide books.

Hay is available as a guest speaker about Indiana rivers and river life in general. His talks are very popular with river organizations, schools and libraries. His topics are not only about navigation, but also history, geography, and river lore. Jerry is retired as Riverlorian for the Delta Queen Steamboats of New Orleans. He gave daily talks, serves as a river guide, and made announcements about interesting sites along the rivers. The passengers are usually on week-long trips on navigable rivers throughout the eastern United States.

His expertise about rivers is well known and led to him being called as an expert witness in a case that led to designating a river as non-navigable. He has traveled nearly every major river in the U.S., including the entire lengths of the Mississippi River and Ohio Rivers. One of Jerry's unusual writing projects is a published children's book. The booked titled "A Goose Named Gilligan" was written by Hay about the true adventures of a goose that he rescued and was adopted by him.

Another book project by Hay is completed. He started writing the book in 1997 and after nearly eight years it is finished. The book is titled "Beyond The Bridges" and is one of the most complete books about life on the rivers ever written. "Rivers Revealed" was released in June of 2007 by Indiana University Press This edition is available world-wide in soft cover. Hay completed the "Ohio River Guide Book" that was published in the Spring of 2008. This book is a complete guide of the entire 981 miles of the river and is a must-have for boaters, floaters and river road travelers. Another guidebook for the Illinois Waterway was published in 2009. Two more guidebooks were completed and published in 2010. One is for the Tennessee River and the other for the Cumberland River. As with other guidebooks, they are a complete and detailed guide for the entire river.

This book was a great help on our trip. We rode jet skis from chattanooga to Knoxville friday. spent the night at the marriot and rode back on Saturday. The guide was very accurate. My friends thought I was really smart. they didn't know I just had a very informative guide. Next we are using it to plan a three day trip from chattanooga to Land between the lakes.

This has been a helpful guide as we cruised the Tennessee, with info on marinas and anchorages and interesting bits of information. I wish the publisher had spent more time and money on editing and proofing, though; most of the errors are syntactical or grammatical, and so only of great consequence to an English major like me, but there are a couple of misprints (eg, "mile 170" rather than "370") that are pretty inexcusable.
