Canoeing and Kayaking Georgia  by Suzanne Welander and Bob Sehlinger
Covering thousands of miles of Georgia's waterways, Canoeing & Kayaking Georgia is the definitive guide to Georgia's whitewater to wilderness swamps -- and everything in between. This updated edition incorporates the exhilarating new urban whitewater course in Columbus, and the recently established water trails that actively welcome recreational paddlers throughout the state. Now expanded to cover more waterways in Southwest Georgia -- Kinchafoonee, Muckalee, and Ichawaynochaway Creeks -- you only need one book to figure out where to float, no matter what type of boat you paddle.
