Praise for A Kayaker's Guide to Lake George There is an art to telling the story, what to put in and what to leave out. Russell captures that art in these pages. His tales of the waters, their geologic origins and the human saga of what happened along their banks combine to make a rich tapestry for the paddler. Russell Dunn is doing us a great service, making it easier to get out paddling and to see the stories behind the scenery, giving us reasons to care. Alan Mapes, former Director of Five Rivers Environmental Education Center in Delmar and Chief of the Bureau of Environmental Education for NYSDEC.
As always Russell Dunn has included an abundance of interesting historical information and has continued to meticulously document all accessible launches both great and small. This book is a joy to read and a compendium of useful information. I highly recommend it. Scott S. Keller, Trails & Special Projects Director, Hudson River Valley Greenway
