California possesses the largest, most diverse concentration of accessible high quality whitewater in the world; and Chuck Stanley and Lars Holbeck, two of the country's premier whitewater boaters, have written a guide to the best of it.

Drawing upon more than fifty years of combined experience, Stanley and Holbeck have described 180 separate runs, many of which are in print here for the first time. The whitewater ranges from mildy challenging to downright hair-raising, and the descriptions are profusely illustrated with maps, photos, and the unavoidable quota of whitewater lies.

For the the intermediate to advanced California boater, with an interest in exploring some the the state's lesser-known canyons, this is the definitive word.
