    Wickersham Curious about Wooden Canoes

    I know I asked this question before The Crash but didn't write down the answer (and I am serious about finding one). Does anyone know of a favorite book showing best places to paddle in New England - New York especially. I am interested in lakes not rivers.

    Well, you get the picture. Go to Amazon and search on Canoeing New York and you'll get lots...

    AMC (Appalachian Mountain Club) has Flatwater, actually I think they call them Quiet Water guides and River guides for each of the New England states, as well. They are available at many outdoors stores. You can probably find them at Amazon thru this website too.
