Laurel Archer lived, paddled and guided in the Northern Saskatchewan wilderness for 12 years. She has canoed or kayaked most of North America's major rivers, as well as rivers in Costa Rica, India and Malaysia. Her writing has appeared in numerous outdoor recreation magazines and anthologies.
Archer has painstakingly documented the rivers and generously
shared her notes about rapids and campsites; her writing is
organized, consistent and reliable.--Monika Rohlmann"Canadian Book

Provides important detailed descriptions, maps and sage advice ... this book in format, content and style has a lot going for it.-- (03/16/2003)
Will be appreciated by serious paddlers planning multi-day trips into the rugged, pre-Cambrian wilderness of northern Saskatchewan... filled with route descriptions and practical details... Best of all, Archer references her descriptions to map coordinates.-- (05/10/2003)
Detailed ... a keen sense of what real life paddlers -- as opposed to macho endurance heroes -- want out of a wilderness trip.-- (03/23/2003)
