of Guide to the San Juan River from Montezuma Creek to Clay Hills Crossing, UT by Duwain Whitis and Tom Martin:

Just returned home today from a week on the San Juan. I bought the new guide at Recapture Lodge before we started. The guide is very good, gives details about the camps and history of the river, and is very waterproof. The only drawback is that it is a BIG guide. Great for those of us with over 40 eyes, but would require a larger map case. However, it spent the week unprotected in the drop bag beneath the seat of my cataraft, getting wet and muddy, and it was fine. All it needed was a quick wipe off and the pages never stuck together.

Following the success of their guide to the Grand Canyon, Duwain Whitis and Tom Martin have produced a spectacular guide to Utah's San Juan River. This second offering in the RiverMaps series gives boaters detailed mile-by mile text and the finest, most precise river maps available anywhere. The spiral-bound guide is printed on high-quality waterproof paper with plenty of photos. The most eyecatching feature of this RiverMaps guide is the lavish color reproductions of USGS topo maps at their original scale of 2,000 feet per inch. Every nook and cranny in the canyon, every jog in the riverbank, stands out in vivid detail. For people who love maps, these guides are works of art.
