Primarily a specialized travel guide  Mar 6, 2004
Paddling Iowa: 96 Great Trips By Canoe And Kayak by canoing and kayaking expert Nate Hoogeveen is a straightforward guide specially designed for Iowa water sports enthusiasts wanting to engage themselves in canoeing and kayaking Iowa's challenging river systems. Each two-page spread features a map of a suggested river on one side, and on the other side, detailing extensive information concerning nearby camps or canoe rentals, shuttle routs to the water, gradient, extensive description, tips, tricks, and techniques specific to the route, and more. An excellently organized and easy-to-use resource for planning great canoe and kayak trips, Paddling Iowa is primarily a specialized travel guide and does presume that the reader already knows how to safely and effectively operate a canoe or kayak.
Love to paddle Iowa  Feb 28, 2004
This is a fantastic guidebook. Every paddler and every library in Iowa and surrounding states should have a copy.

Nate Hoogeveen knows and loves Iowa rivers. He has found the best places to experience the beauty of Iowa. He has come to know the history of those places and tells the fascinating stories associated with them in ways that enhance one's appreciation of the rivers.

I am very impressed with the love and effort that went into this book. Nate has gotten to know the local experts who know all the secrets of the river, and has travelled every mile with an eye to giving us an accurate and useful description of what we can anticipate finding when we take our own journeys.

One of the most helpful feature of the book is the maps of rivers and roads. Each section has a map with detail that provides exactly what is needed to get on and off the river. I have no idea how the maps were made, I only know that they replace a bookshelf full of atlases and guide books that just don't provide the information that Nate Hoogeveen provides in one amazingly helpful volume.

In short, Nate Hoogeveen has given those of us who paddle on Iowa rivers a whole lifetime of beautiful places to discover for ourselves. Those who have wanted to get down to an Iowa river, from anywhere in the state, will have all the information they need to find a wonderful stretch of river. Paddlers, get a copy now. Librarians, the young people of your town (and the young at heart) will thank you for putting this guidebook on your library shelves.

Iowa is the Beautiful Land, our rivers are the most beautiful places of all. Come discover Iowa's river treasures with Paddling Iowa by Nate Hoogeveen.
