The Poster Child of Wilderness Canoeing Guides Sept. 16 2010
By Dennis L. Tyler - Published on
Format: Paperback
Anyone contemplating writing a wilderness canoeing guide would do well to go the distance in emulating this guidebook; it is nothing short of fantastic on every front and especially well-written and organized.

I will also add that it is one of the better "Look inside" presentations I've seen on Amazon. Northern-ish Canada, i.e. the latitudinal belt running across the sub-arctic provinces, is a wonderful part of the globe to explore, especially by canoe, and for its broad range of skill requirements (there are options for every skill level; not everyone is looking for a Class IV or V rapids experience) and this guide covers them all, and more, for Northern Saskatchewan. Ms. Archer also includes considerable, fascinating history regarding the area and the river trips described. Especially interesting is the detailing of where each of the rivers covered fit into both the First Nation's history and the early fur trade voyageurs. I very highly recommend this guide.

Don't go without it May 15 2006
By J. Ross pepper - Published on
Format: Paperback
I took last summer off to float some rivers in Canada. This book is excellent both for deciding which of the rivers of Northern Saskatchewan to float and for use during your trip. It is exceptionally well organized and detailed. Ms. Archer will not steer you wrong and the book is full of helpful advice that comes from a person who has obviously done a multitude of river trips and who has an exceptional level of wilderness wisdom and skill.

The book you need Aug. 19 2005
By J. Moody - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you plan on going canoeing in N. Sask. this is the book you need. Almost every major river in this area is profiled with history, character of river, detailed map with UTM coordinates of important sites. Also includes info. on the type of fish in each river - important for the anglers. I have used it on several occasions when paddling in this beautiful area of N. Sask. The appendix includes important outfitter contacts and websites to check water levels.
Must Have Guide for Northern Saskatchewan Canoeing Oct. 28 2013
By Skyjumper - Published on
Format: Paperback
I've been canoeing northern Saskatchewan since the 70s and lead 1-2 cost sharing brigades with friends flying in from all over North America, and even (twice) from Bangkok where I live winters. Saskatchewan's 100,000 pristine wilderness lakes and rivers offer the best canoeing on the planet and are this province's best kept secret. As well, the Main Highway of the Fur Trade and exploration went through here, particularly on the fabulous Churchill River. All the great explorers from Sir John Franklin to Alexander Mackenzie to David Thompson to Simon Fraser paddled through here. It's loaded with history. Laurel's book (and I know her, of course, you can't canoe that long here without doing so, so that's full disclosure) is a Must Buy guide if you're doing our waters and there's not a trip that I do that I haven't xeroxed her meticulous crib sheets for my map pack. As well, her trip descriptions are outstanding on all levels and there's the bonus that she's a helluva talented writer and knows how to turn a phrase. Her love and passion for both canoeing and the wilderness shine through. There's room for lots more paddlers in the north and that's a secondary reason I'm writing this review: the more paddling activity, the greater the chance we'll protect this precious chunk of real estate from the damn dam builders. I'm sure Laurel would concur.
