"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

Another great paddle. Others have borrowed this book and then went ahead and bought it.Published on July 2, 2014 by Dawn
Great reading so far! Its winter so I can't launch yet though. The directions on local spots seem accurate though. Can't wait to resume paddling. Read morePublished on January 7, 2014 by May Water
It could have been more comprehensive as it does not include all available water worth paddling in the areas listed.Published on February 23, 2013 by JP
