From the Back Cover:

From the tangled cypress shores of the Little Shark River to the backwater recesses of the Ten Thousand Islands to the wide-open expanse of Tampa Bay, cruising expert and writer Claiborne Young provides an accurate, comprehensive guide to the enchanting waterways of Western Florida.
Besides navigational data, this updated seventh edition includes anchorage locales along the entire western shore of the peninsula, from Flamingo to the Big Bend, and directs readers to a variety of popular resorts and marinas, restaurants, local attractions, and historic sites. This guide also gives specific way points for anchorages and marinas and has ratings for transient docking fees.
As in his previous books, Young furnishes maps, photographs, and chart references, as well as intriguing historical profiles and coastal folklore, to give visitors the flavor of the region. Sections on unsafe areas and shoals help cruisers avoid dangerous waters. Whether readers are drawn to the best in dock-side dining or to the untouched beauty of the region's more remote waterways, Young provides the perfect source book to meet every traveler's needs.
The author and his navigator wife, Karen, are avid, experienced cruisers who have logged countless hours exploring coastal Florida to ensure the accuracy of their descriptions and recommendations. He also has written Coastal Charts for Cruising Guide to Western Florida, a cross-referenced companion volume featuring full-color NOAA charts.
