HASH(0xb6afe144) out of 5 stars Keeper waterfall book Jan. 21 2006
By P. Nelson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is the updated version of the 1994 book - and at its release - it's extremely accurate of trail conditions (just used it). This is the bible for NC waterfalls in my opinion. The chapters are laid out nicely according to region and there are enough details to always set you right direction to each falls.

If you are a photographer, this book is even more enjoyable. Kevin has laid out how to approach many of the shots, what conditions are right, what to expect, and so forth. This makes visiting the falls exciting, but photographing them even more so. He offers quite a few tips and tricks, but does not go overboard with photography advice (aimed primarily for the serious amateur or pro).

If you are visiting NC - this is a must have. After reading it, I'd buy it even if I wasn't visiting. It has a lot of history of each falls and also of the local regions, so as a geography book, it's a great read.

This book (and previous) version made us go out of our way on two vacations to spend extra days in western NC. We're probably going to plan dedicated trips to this area now - we like it so much.

Also - Kevin's website suppliments the book VERY nicely to include updates and changes.

This is never a boring book and is an enjoyable read even when you're not exploring!

HASH(0xb35b4edc) out of 5 stars Highly Recommended May 25 2006
By KP - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I visited the mountains last week (Mid May) and with the help of this book I was able to find some really beautiful waterfalls. I never would have known they were there if not for the book. The directions were clear and easy to following, and the information on where to park was extrememly helpful. The best part about it was the fact that we had every waterfall to ourselves. I would highly recommened this book to anyone who enjoys unspoiled waterfalls.

HASH(0xb35b448c) out of 5 stars A lovely, comprehensive guide for destination-oriented outdoors adventurers Nov. 7 2005
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Any outdoors-oriented traveler planning a journey to North Carolina will find North Carolina's Waterfalls: A Hiking And Photography Guide packed with details on how to visit the area. Many of the state's best waterfalls receive little tourist attention: North Carolina Waterfalls remedies the lack of information, offering 'beauty ratings', accessibility details, maps, directions, and more. A lovely, comprehensive guide for destination-oriented outdoors adventurers.

HASH(0xb35ae0a8) out of 5 stars Comprehensive and very useful Oct. 11 2005
By Chad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is a must if you are making a trip to any North Carolina Waterfall. It gives very detailed information on how to navigate your way and how to photograph these wonderful images of nature. I was lucky enough to meet Mr. Adams at one of his signings and was able to witness his passion for the outdoors in person. Great resource for everything that is NC Waterfalls.

Format: Paperback
I am an amatuer nature photographer so I am always on the look-out for books to know where to go to shoot. This book may be the best photography guide I have ever had. He tells you where the waterfalls are, and how to photograph them. Best of all he has the guts to rate the quality of each waterfall on a scale of 1 to 10. There are so many waterfalls that I can't visit them all. With this book I can go only to the highly rated ones and know they will be knock-outs. When I get there he will help me to know how to shoot it. This is a great book!
