REVIEWS
-

"Stunningly illustrated book detailing the world's most breath-taking, on-water adventures."

- Bookseller Buyer's Guide, August 2011

"The book cherry picks a hundred paddling venues from around the world. These involve all kinds of paddling and at all grades, the easier paddling with scenery to compensate but with a predominance of extreme white water."

- The Canoeist, November 2012
