Top Customer Reviews
Beyond the bad directions, the book is difficult to use. I was looking for falls near where I was staying. Near the end of the introduction, there is an overview map, which lists each waterfall as a numbered dot. You have to flip back several pages to find an index that tells you the name of the falls attached to the number, which allows you to find the falls in the book. Also, he doesn't include a picture of every waterfall, which matters since his rating system may not jive with yours. His ratings appear to be based almost entirely on water volume; some of the more beautiful waterfalls actually have the lowest ratings.
Since you’ll be going online to find pictures and accurate directions anyway, you might as well just skip this book entirely.
The coverage of the falls that are in the book includes directions, an occasional photo, and a fairly detailed description of the featured fall.
The directions and details make the book worth a look. I'm just disappointed by the lack of coverage of the falls on the western side of the state.
Update: I sounded a little critical in my original review, and I apologize to the author for that. The book IS in fact a great exploration of the waterfalls in Pennsylvania: great descriptions of the falls, very thorough directions, photography advice and a description of the technique the author used. Some very handy informaiton.
I did find a number of mistakes in the GPS coordinates and/or written driving directions to some of the falls, however. As a geocacher, I rely on accurate coordinates to find locations and in one instance I couldn't find the falls mentioned in the book. East Branch falls in Sullivan County wasn't in the location described by the book; it was actually 4/10ths of a mile away. The book's map was accurate but the coordinates and driving directions were not, and I missed out seeing that waterfall when I was in the area since I ran out of time hunting for it. Other falls where I've found the coordinates to be incorrect in the book include Second Falls, Logan Falls, and Seven Tubs. Still, in a book of 50+ falls, a few mistakes are bound to slip through. Unless you're using a GPS to navigate as I do, you'd probably never even notice most of these mistakes.
Even with the few errors, this book is extremely valuable for waterfalls hunters. I've added it to my own library, and I'd recommend anyone in the Keystone state with an interest in the magnificent beauty of falling water do the same.
