New Book

I've not paddled too many canoes, but I like the look of this book which will be published 16th March by Pesda Press costing £15.99. Here's what their press release says:

"Eddy Palmer has chosen his favourite twenty-five inland touring routes and described them in loving detail. The routes are beautifully illustrated with numerous colour photos and specially commissioned maps.
The selected routes are suitable for open canoes, sit-on-tops and touring kayaks. Many of them are multi-day trips that can be tackled as a single voyage or a series of day trips. Great variety is provided, the journeys taking place on inland lochs, sheltered sea lochs and rivers of up to Grade 2.
A wonderful book for planning, dreaming of future voyages, or sharing your experiences with non-paddling friends."

I used Nigel Foster's book last winter while paddling in southern Florida. This type of format is an excellent way to get 'into' a place and really see it, especially if you're from away. That one has come out for Scotland is good news. I hope they do well with it. Thanks for the posting!
