AMC’s fully updated Quiet Water Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island is everything a recreational paddler could ask for in a regional guide. With an all-new layout and design, this easy-to-use guide will help paddlers of all skill levels discover 100 of the best flatwater lake and river trips in Southern New England. This edition now features an “At-a-Glance” quick trip planner, GPS coordinates to parking locations, improved maps, and new trip planning/safety information resources. Quiet Water will appeal to local residents of the region while staying entirely accessible to visitors and tourists.
"Finally, a guidebook aimed at the forgotten canoeist: families, bird watchers, solo adventurers, seniors, and average human beings who don't need to run rapids or mount an expedition to enjoy their paddling experience."
"I read Quiet Water cover to cover. It's packed with delicious nuggets of lore and wisdom. The writing is lively and informal. The Appalachian Mountain Club has outdone itself."
"For avid canoeists who prefer calm lakes and rivers, this is a great book, one that I wish was available for every state. The locations described are so peaceful that you tend to forget that you are in one of the most populated regions of the country."
