About this book

The Broad River is among the last free-flowing rivers in Georgia and perhaps the state's most wild. The Broad River User's Guide traces the unique characteristics of the full 60 miles of the river and the 110 miles of its three forks (South, Middle, and North) before the main river's convergence with the Savannah River.

In doing so, the guide outlines the river's cultural and natural history, telling the story of humans' relationship to the river from precolonial days to the present. Though the mainstem of the Broad is one of the few Georgia rivers to escape dams, it was one of Georgia's first inland river valleys to be explored and settled. Along its course are rare species like shoals spider lilies and the Bartram's bass, not to mention some of the most popular whitewater paddling in North Georgia.

With this handbook, river explorers will find all the information needed to embark on a Broad River journey, including detailed maps, put in/take out suggestions, fishing and camping locations, mile-by-mile points of interest, and an illustrated natural history guide to help identify animals and plants commonly seen in and around the river.

Media reviews

"The Broad River User's Guide is more than a book of maps about a river that today is protected for its environmental beauty and free-flowing waters [...] The book points out many old and forgotten points of interest, places such as Kennedy's Gate, a spot where Long Creek in Oglethorpe County connects to the Broad. This locale was a settlement where trappers met and traded their goods."
– Wayne Ford, Athens Banner-Herald
