Georgia, the largest state east of the Mississippi, has ten major river basins and an estimated 20,000 miles of streams. Canoeing & Kayaking Georgia combines and expands the information gathered in A Paddler’s Guide to Southern Georgia and A Paddler’s Guide to Northern Georgia, the classic paddling guides for this state for over twenty years. From the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Georgia to the Atlantic Coast of Southeast Georgia, this redesigned and completely updated guide to paddling the creeks, rivers, and coastal waterways of Georgia covers thousands of miles of paddling that range in difficulty from scenic floats down the Oostanaula to whitewater runs of the Dog. New maps, new river profiles, completely updated contact information, at-a-glance data that includes class, length, time, gauge, level, gradient, volume, and ratings for solitude and scenery make this guide almost as indispensable as the paddle and life jacket.

About the author (2005)

Bob Sehlinger has led canoeing trips throughout eastern North America and is the former president of the Eastern Professional River Outfitters Association. He is the creator of the Unofficial Guide travel series and a recipient of the Lowell Thomas Gold Award for journalistic excellence. Founder and publisher of Menasha Ridge Press, Sehlinger lives in Birmingham, Alabama, where he enjoys mountain biking and playing the drums.

Though always in love with rivers and wilderness, it wasn't until five years ago that Suzanne Welander began canoeing in earnest. Inspired by the beauty, variety, and challenge of Georgia's rivers and streams, the former desert-dweller transformed into a whitewater canoeist and wilderness tripper. Together with her husband, she trolls the state in search of the wild and scenic beauty only accessible by waterway.
