Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0897321340, Paperback)

When veteran paddlers Bob Sehlinger and Don Otey set out to write a canoeing and kayaking guide to the streams of Georgia, they discovered that the project was beyond the scope of the average paddling guide. The result of their explorations, therefore, is not a single, comprehensive, detailed and authoritative guidebook to the streams of Georgia, but two such books.

Each guide is immense in scope and self-contained, with extensive introductory chapters that provide an easy-to-read overview of Georgia's diverse wildlife, geology, climate and water quality, as well as illuminating explanations of stream formation and hydrology. Each book contains sections on the legal rights of paddlers and emergency procedures, and is illustrated with drawings and photographs.

Together, the guides cover thousands of miles of paddling streams which range in difficulty from scenic floats to whitewater runs. Each stream is detailed with a description that conveys the flavor and difficulties of the run in non-technical terms. This description is supplemented with a data sheet that contains an abundance of information. Rounding out each description are detailed river maps showing access points, shuttle routes, and mileages.

A comprehensive guide to the streams of the Cumberland Plateau, Blue Ridge Mountains, and eastern Piedmont regions of northern Georgia. Also included are near-by favorite streams of Georgia paddlers - the Little River Canyon of Alabama, the Chauga River of South Carolina, and the Ocoee and Hiawassee rivers of Tennessee.
