A Guide to the Chattooga River, 2nd edition
Butch Clay


A Comprehensive Guide to the River and Its Natural and Human History

In 1974 the Chattooga River became the first river East of the Mississippi to be included in the National Wild and Scenic River System. It was included because it was a clean, free-flowing mountain stream located in a relatively undeveloped mountain environment. Forming part of the Georgia-South Carolina Border, the Chattooga is the only free-flowing portion of the Savannah River System. This book gives a comprehensive overview of the river including the topography, physiography and geology, weather and climate, human history, plant life, wildlife, and recreation opportunities.

Alaska Adventure Guide

Alaska Adventure Guide
Melissa DeVaughn


The author has worked to answer all your questions about travel and recreation in a state so remote. This guide attempts to target your interests and save you time, money, and effort so that nothing is wasted during your trip. Because Alaska is so big and your options so varied, the guide is organized so you can zero in on the activity or activities that appeal to you most. Thirteen chapters focus solely on adventure travel, each devoted to a single activity.

The five regional chapters that follow focus primarily on the basics in a given area of the state: getting around, shopping, lodging, dining, and entertainment. Once you’ve chosen the adventure of your dreams, you can go to the appropriate regional chapter to get the scoop on the best places in the vicinity to stay, eat, buy gear, rent a car, and learn about local culture and history. Outdoor travelers also are likely independent travelers. A multitude of companies offer exciting-sounding jaunts to scenic places all over the state, but many of these outfits work only with tour providers, such as cruise-ship operators, to obtain large numbers of clients per trip—thus excluding people who wish to travel on their own.

In this guide, all our listings are available to independent travelers as well as those in tour groups. The objective is not to provide the most information about destinations or attractions, but, rather, the most useful information. The guide is opinionated, and for good reason. Any destination or outfitter listed here has made the cut by proving itself a wonderful place to visit or a reliable company with which to do business. If, for example, you want to learn more about sea kayaking in Alaska, you will not be supplied with every operation in the business—and believe us, there are many of them competing for your dollars. What you will get is a select assortment of those we consider best, and why. After all, isn’t the point of a guidebook to help you make the most informed choices?

Backcountry Fishing

Backcountry Fishing
Johnny Molloy


    For many anglers, the lure of fishing is not always the fish, but the places where the fish are. Tossing a rod is just the excuse for heading into the back of beyond, to enjoy nature on nature's terms, to get past the parking lot to enter the backcountry.

     Whether going by foot or by self-propelled craft, such as a canoe or kayak, backcountry travel leads anglers from an auto accessible trailhead or put-in to a fishing destination they must reach on their own, without a car or motorboat. This is backcountry fishing. The simplest way is to get there by foot. Walking or hiking to the destination requires merely a body of water, whether it be a lake or stream.

     Outback travel by boat is a little more complicated. A canoe or kayak is needed. In this situation you will start at a put-in and if by river, travel downstream, maybe camping, maybe not, then ending at a take-out. Other times, you will start and end in the same place, especially when traveling lakes, or a series of lakes connected by portages. Many kayaking destinations will be in saltwater. Some backcountry boating destinations, whether they be fresh or salt, river, lake or ocean, will be shared by some motor boaters. This guide covers backcountry fishing, whether day tripping in a canoe, day hiking along a remote river, or going for a multi-day excursion.

     Whether fly fishing, spin fishing, or saltwater fishing, Backcountry Fishing has all the information needed to be best prepared for backcountry fishing excursions. * Equipment including repair and maintenance * Casting techniques * Types of boats, canoes, and kayaks * Backcountry campsites * List of fish including where to find and bait to use *Cooking in the backcountry *Safety To help get anglers started, a list of backcountry fishing destinations for each state is also included with hiking and paddling destinations. It covers the bodies of water to be fished, where the waters are, the fish to be caught, backcountry accesses, what maps will be helpful, what types of overnight camping possibilities while fishing, and a helpful Internet information link.
