Though it sports a new name and look, "A Canoeing &
Kayaking Guide to West Virginia" (formerly "Wildwater
West Virginia)" is still the definitive guide to whitewater in
the Mountain State. Thirty years after it was published, this book
continues to bring paddlers the best of West Virginias rivers--from
classics rivers, such as the Gauley, the New, and the Tygart, to
steep creeks like North Fork of Blackwater and Meadow River.
Beginning his paddling career in the 60's while in college, Charlie Walbridge has made West Virginia his second home during the paddling season. The remaining months he can be found in Penllyn, Pennsylvania.
