The Arkansas River Guide Book is a guide for river runners to the Arkansas River in Colorado. The guide explores the valley, from the town of Granite downstream past Buena Vista and Salida, and out toward the Prairie at Canon City. With many photographs, the book tells about river access points, which rapids deserve scouting and from which side of the river, and contains descriptions of the river itself. There's discussion of the geologic past in this region, which brought us the Rocky Mountains and this river. Real topographic maps, not line drawings, show the entire run.
