Good news! The new Third Edition of Idaho’s Salmon River: A River Runner’s Guide to the River of No Return is about to rolling off the press.
We’ve increased the size of the book 25% to 11.25″ X 7.5″. The book is printed on a more sustainable water-resistant paper—that is not petroleum-based. And, as always, it is printed in the USA.
River guides call Eric Newell’s guidebook the ‘Salmon River bible’ for good reason. 2023 marks Eric’s 30th summer on the Salmon River. Whether you are an experienced do-it-yourself boater, a professional guide, booking a commercial trip, or just plain curious to know the secrets of the canyon Lewis and Clark turned their backs on, you’ll find this guide indispensable. These pages contain all you need to plan, carry-out, and make the most of your journey down the Main Salmon River, from obtaining a permit to emptying your groover. The 2023 Third Edition has updates throughout, is 25% larger, and is proudly printed in the USA on a more sustainable water-resistant paper that is not petroleum based. It contains numerous updates, aerial photo-based contour maps, mile by mile descriptions, trail information, packing and check lists, rapid diagrams, geology, good humor, and updated history. This waterproof map and guide is a must have for every boat. More than 100 color photographs! The original edition won an Honorable Mention at National Outdoor Book Awards.
