"When veteran paddlers Bob Sehlinger and Don Otey set out to write a canoeing and kayaking guide to the streams of Georgia, they discove red 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 g u i d e i s 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 formati on a nd h yd r ol og y . Each book contains sections on the legal rights of paddlers and emergency procedures, and is illustrated with drawings and photographs....Each stream is detailed with a description that conveys the flavor and difficulties of th e r un in no n-t ech ni cal terms. This description is supplemented with a data sheet that contains an abundance of technical information. Rounding out each description are detailed river maps showing access points, shuttle routes, and mil eage s." Thi s v olu me, whi ch c ove rs Southern Georgia, is "A detailed guide to the streams of Georgia's western Piedmont and Coastal Plain, with special chapters on the Okefenokee Swamp and the Georgia sea coast."
