The Neches River winds through a large portion of Texas' scarce public lands, and Neches River User Guide, a project of the Texas Conservation Alliance, offers outdoor enthusiasts a menu of ways to enjoy this wild Texas river. As users flip through this guide book, its user-friendly maps will reveal the towns, roads, entry points, bridges, public lands, parks, and other landmarks along nearly 360 miles of the river's course. Each map details practical information about public access points, potential hazards, camping facilities, and GPS coordinates for points of interest.The guide also includes a brief description of the archeology and history of human habitation along the river, as well as photographs of plants and animals common in the bottomland hardwood ecosystem. A final note on conservation efforts, past and present, will help readers join in protecting the river for future generations.
Very nice nice paddling guide to the Neches River. Broken into 18 segments that someone might paddle in a day. Each segment has a color map, and written details. Also includes history of the river and natural history of the plantlife and wildlife you can expect to encounter on the trip. To accompany this guide, I recommend also purchasing PADDLING THE WILD NECHES, by Richard Donovan who is also the father of the author of this guide, Gina Donovan. I would have prefered this guide to be sprial bound, and more water resistant.
