I bought this book because I was raised in the Willamette Valley, the river dominates my memories of what to me were days of wonder. The book brought back in more detail the river, its predominate impact on the valley itself and the people who live there. I read the book with interest as it provided detail and substance to the river and those who reside along its majestic presence. It brought to sharp attention, the need to protect this ancient waterway. It brought back to me, in addition, visions of my own life in the valley.
I needed a little more on fishing than it had, and something about waterfowl hunting (I found nothing).
The maps are good and the river speed data was pretty good.
Throw it in the boat and use it to discover some new fishing areas (and avoid some potential propeller hazards).
