Cliff Jacobson has led the life I wish I could have. This paddling master has traveled the world to explore some of the greatest rivers for canoing. And his practical experience has led to a book that should be part of any paddler's reference library. Not only does he tell you what to pack, how to navigate with maps, compass and GPS, and how to make field repairs, but he outlines how to pick the perfect crew for an extended trip. The fact that the book marked its 20th anniversary this year is proof that it contains lasting wisdom.
