River Gypsies Guide to North America

I wanted to take moment to help promote the latest guidebook from Leland and Andria Davis: The River Gypsies Guide to North America. I received my copy a few weeks ago (thanks for getting them out so fast guys!) and am super impressed with its quality. As usual the book has tons of awesome photos, great descriptions, and beta. I was very pleased to have a number of my photos included (check out the Mid Atlantic section!).

Make sure to pick up a copy:

From the River Gypsies Site:

“This guide to the top 20-40 day runs from class III to V+ in each of 9 highlighted regions across the continent is packed with information helping you to have the perfect paddling road trip - with information on a whopping total of 294 rivers! We've filtered out all of the marginal runs and left enough classic whitewater from each region to keep you occupied for a 1-2 week trip, with detailed info on when the best time is to travel to each region. We've also loaded the book down with info on finding shuttles, camping spots, where to get a shower, internet, or a cold beer. Our hope is that this book will redefine the way that whitewater guidebooks can help paddlers enjoy a region that is not their home area.

The River Gypsies' Guide is 408 pages packed with detailed descriptions of 294 rivers, gauge info, scale maps, shuttle directions, and of course, high quality color photos - and lots of 'em. It also has tons of tables to help you compare the difficulty of the streams, nearby camping options, paddling seasons, and other nearby services so that you can plan the paddling trip of your dreams!”
