This is the guidebook to measure all guidebooks against. Leland Davis did a fantastic job on this. Huge two page full color pictures, descriptions, shuttle directions and difficulty ratings and a few stories. A few first descent pictures are included like Steve Frazier on Compression Falls & Corran Addison on Looking Glass Falls.
101 whitewater runs and playspots in North Carolina and just over the borders in Georgia, Tennessee and South Carolina are described and pictured. Over 400 color photos and 28 maps make this pleasant on the eyes, while tons of detail feed the mind.
