Paddling in the Yukon describes 73 trips on northern rivers, lakes and the Arctic Ocean. Includes the Yukon plus rivers in southeast Alaska, northern BC, and western Northwest Territories. Includes the world-famous South Nahanni, Tatshenshini, Yukon, Alsek and Firth Rivers. Whether you enjoy flatwater or whitewater, this book will introduce you to the paddling trip of your dreams.

This book is as much a celebration of Yukon watersheds as it is a guide to the rivers, lakes and Arctic coastline. A watershed is a concept you can understand, unlike a political boundary. You can walk to the height of land, watch the snow melting and see the trickles of water flowing downhill. The moisture filters through the soil and reappears in wildflowers, spruce trees, wolves - and you. The river at the valley bottom patiently erodes and shapes its watershed. However, it is the watershed that defines the river's true character.
