Reviews - What do customers think about Quiet Water New York, 2nd: Canoe & Kayak Guide (AMC Quiet Water Series)?

Could have more useful info...  Aug 25, 2007
Definitely a nice book overall, with thorough descriptions of calm bodies of water in New York State. However, I'm disappointed with the lack of map detail. In addition, there are no coordinates given (i.e., lattitude and longitude). This is an updated book and should definitely include coordinates for modern-day GPS users. I had to cross-reference another book that had better map detail and included coordinates (title: The Hudson River Water Trail Guide-6th edition).
very helpful  May 10, 2007
In time for spring and summer, the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) has released a new, second edition of Quiet Water: New York, a Canoe and Kayak guide to the Empire State compiled by John Hayes and Alex Wilson.

As the title suggests, the authors are very clear that their new guidebook is designed for the canoe and kayak enthusiast who is look for quiet or solitude. There is no whitewater assistance offered here. However, ninety different options around New York State including nine locations within Central New York are suggested in this book.

"Quiet Water" also includes a plethora of helpful suggestions to plan your next outing on the water. The books provides maps, habitat descriptions of each area, phone numbers, websites, even a description of animal habitats one might encounter on the water. Scattered throughout the volume are photos from the water and profiles of local animals.

A great companion guide to anyone who looking to paddle this summer.
