“Helmets and hats off to Bob for his new book Tennessee Rivers! In order for people to enjoy and have a good experience on the river, they need an accurate description of their destination. This is also vital for safety reasons. This book provides that along with much of the history of the areas as well. As a native Tennessean, I especially enjoy the history that is scattered throughout the book. There are many stories of individuals who have spent countless hours of their own time to protect and preserve our Tennessee Rivers. The maps are easy to navigate and the roads and especially the bridges are easily identifiable.” -Daniel Boone, board member and past president,  Tennessee Scenic Rivers Association

The bible of Tennessee canoeing and kayaking, this book provides the paddling enthusiast with a description of each Tennessee stream’s access points, along the large maps, water levels, and difficulty ratings. A revised edition of Lantz’s A Canoeing and kayaking Guide to the Streams of Tennessee, it includes new information and improved maps – eighty in all.
