From the Author:

EXPEDITION CANOEING is the third edition of my flagship book, CANOEING WILD RIVERS, which has been popular since 1984. More than half the material, and all the expedition accounts, photos and illustrations are new. The huge appendix is larger than some canoeing books! Readers of earlier editions of CANOEING WILD RIVERS will hardly recognize this updated, expanded new edition. EXPEDITION CANOEING is not just the work of Cliff Jacobson. Kent Ford, Gary and Joan McGuffin, Bob O'Hara, Michael Peake, Annie Aggens, Laurie Gullion, Alex Hall, Verlen Kruger, Bob Dannert and dozens of other internationally known paddlers have made their mark on these pages. There are hundreds of new ideas, plus a new chapter in which acknowledged experts share advice. This is not a book about canoeing technique. It is an encyclopedia of nuts and bolts and an essential reference for those who canoe wilderness waterways.

When the first edition of CANOEING WILD RIVERS appeared in 1984, Alaska Outdoors Magazine said it was "The first book you should buy!" The Minnesota Canoe Asssociation called it "The bible of far north canoeing". This new 2000 color edition of EXPEDITION CANOEING goes light years beyond previous editions to address every question about wilderness canoeing. And like earlier editions, you won't have to head to the Arctic to get more than your money's worth. If you love canoeing remote waterways you will love EXPEDITION CANOEING as much as I loved writing it.

From the Back Cover:

Expedition Canoeing (formerly titled Canoeing Wild Rivers) is the premier guide to canoeing and exploring North America's waterways. This completely revamped edition expertly details everything you need to know about paddling the continent's wild rivers. Cliff Jacobson uses his thirty plus years of river running to give you sound advice and advanced techniques for canoeing in the wilderness. You will find dozens of black-and-white and color photos, how-to illustrations, canoeing and camping tricks, and a discussion of GPS navigation. In a chapter new to this edition, the author augments his recommendations with the hard-won advice of fellow canoeing experts. Preparation and skills are everything when expedition canoeing. Take along this guide on all of your canoeing adventures. This guide contains information on how to pick a crew, route and trip planning, canoeing and camping gear, how to deal with dangerous bears, canoe hazards and rescue, barren-land travel and much more. (7 1/2 x 9, color photos, b&w photos, diagrams, charts, maps)
