    An excellent book covering all aspects of paddling the Wilderness Waterway.

    The writing style is always informative and keeps the reader’s interest. Being somewhat familiar with the Wilderness Waterway, from having made one north to south transit, I expected to scan the references to places of special interest to me and leave the rest for use as needed. Instead I found myself drawn to read each entry until suddenly I had finished the book. And, having read the book, I realize how much more there is to experience along the Wilderness Waterway. Their reports stir the imagination.

    The course instructions will be invaluable as you paddle. Their route descriptions ingeniously couple specific guideposts for either a north or south approach on the same page. Things always look different from the other direction. Along with the ever present charts and GPS coordinates, their notes resolve the confusions you are likely to encounter and get you to your intended destination.

    The book is presented in sections, making for easy reference whether you seek information on route, camp site, park life, technical preparation, or even the assistance of related businesses. They cover it all in detail.

    And, through it all, wafting off the pages, is an unmistakable affection for the place. A wealth of information is shared to make the journey safe and comfortable. Essential, complete and up-to-date. That’s the how, the subtle presentation of the why you should go there is what makes the book stand out. Each revelation leaves you eager to learn more about the special place that is the Everglades.

    I purchased this book because I took freestyle canoe classes with one of the authors, Anne McCrary Sullivan, this March. I just wanted to add her book to my library. When I got the book I was totally impressed. The organization and detail defy description. This is not an easy reading armchair book. This is a detailed textbook. It provides all the information you would need on outfitting for Everglade paddles, including links to outfitters, checklists, etc. It then gives detailed descriptions and maps on all of the available campsites and landing. An invaluable tool if you are considering paddling the Everglades.
