Kayak Charleston by Ralph Earhart
16238-14100Regular price €18.00 Save $-18.00
I wrote this guidebook because there was no detailed guide to finding public boat landings, working with the tides and planning kayak trips in the Charleston area. The guide provides details needed to find public boat landings even if signs are down. It explains how to use the tides to receive maximum ease and enjoyment from various trips on the rivers. It provides planning tips and estimated times for trips on the rivers and ocean areas within one hour of Charleston. I have personally visited all the boat landings and made all the trips noted in the guide. This book would be extremely useful for all new paddlers, as well as the more experienced ones who should branch out on the trips they take.

Best Hikes of the Appalachian Trail: South
99437-14107Regular price €17.95 Save $-17.95
Best Hikes of the Appalachian Trail: South is important since it takes readers directly to the best experiences to be had on the Appalachian Trail in highland Dixie. The book details 45 hikes along the AT, from the trail’s southern terminus atop Springer Mountain in Georgia north through North Carolina and Tennessee, into Virginia to the Maryland state line. It helps hikers experience those special moments in special places on the Appalachian Trail, whether it is hiking to overlooks, waterfalls and wildernesses, as well as scenic, cultural and historical sites, even trail towns. Readers can experience adventures stretched out along the spine of the Southern Appalachians. Georgia’s Blood Mountain proudly displays gardens of mountain laurel while deep woodlands of birch and rhododendron rise astride Long Creek. In North Carolina, the open meadows of Siler Bald contrast with the lush forests of Standing Indian Mountain. In Tennessee, the spruce-fir evergreens on Roan Mountain juxtapose with the great oak woodlands found on the shores of Watauga Lake. In Virginia, fern gardens line the AT on the slopes of Stony Man Mountain while wind stunted pine ridges flank the path near the Dragons Tooth. In this varied terrain and habitat, we follow the AT to our hiking destinations. Using veteran outdoor writer Johnny Molloy’s three decades of experience exploring the Southern Appalachians, this book is a true compilation of the best hikes on the Appalachian Trail in the South, and adds value to the book
