This 1,400-mile voyage passe s through unspoiled wilderness, farmland, small towns, cosmopolitan cities—tne Northeast's inland waterways have it all. The Rumseys, one of North America's best-known cruising families, have painstakingly surveyed every harbor, cove, and point of interest along the route, pointing out the choice areas, and offering alternatives to the mundane. Their custom-drawn charts, which guide cruisers into secluded anchorages and crowded marinas alike, areunavailable anywhere else, and amount to an instant infusion of years of l ocal knowledge. A Cruising Guide to the Northeast's Inland Waterways is simnlv the best, most comprehensive cruising guide to the Northeast's best inland cruising." (from the dj).
