Laugh out loud with this hilarious collection of William Nealy’s beloved river maps, together in book form for easy reading!
A celebrated author and cartoonist, William Nealy gained cult-hero status in the outdoor-sports community by blending his passion for the outdoors with his unique style of caricatures. He had a knack for learning—not by doing but by crashing and burning! For years his informative and hilarious cartoon maps of popular canoeing and kayaking streams have delighted whitewater paddlers. Practically collectors’ items, these maps are sought by paddlers all over the United States for their relevance and wild insider’s perspective.
A brilliant and uproarious follow-up to Whitewater Home Companion: Southeastern Rivers, Volume I, this second volume is a special guidebook to 11 celebrated Southeastern streams in six states. It’s special because it provides, in map format, a wealth of information on each of the rivers described—and additionally special because it is embellished throughout with William’s nationally renowned art and humor.
William was a phenomenon, unilaterally deciding that whitewater paddlers should have a sense of humor. Now, largely because of him, most of them do. If you have any doubts concerning your own sense of humor, you should read this book just to be on the safe side.
