Paddling Guidebooks

(Guidebooks listed below may no longer be in print or may be outdated.  Some may be very obscure and hard to find editions.  Since even brand new editions can have obsolete information, you should always make it a point to verify all information when planning a trip.  If you have any questions about these books, feel free to e-mail me since most of the titles are books that I personally own.)
