NOBA Winner - Rio Grande
ACA member, Dr. Paul Bauer of New Mexico recently received a National Outdoor Book Award (NOBA) for his new book, The Rio Grande.
From the NOBA website:
"This colorful and remarkably well done guide, covering 153 miles of the Rio Grande, is packed full of information for flatwater and whitewater paddlers. But it’s not just for river runners. Hikers, anglers and cyclists will also find it invaluable in their trips to Rio Grande country. The maps are first rate. They were developed from an aerial photo base and use a blend of colors and shaded relief to make the river topography stand out. The geological information, both textual and illustrative, is some of the best the judges have seen in a river guide."
