Big Water Little Boats Book

I gotta say that Tom Martin put together a "Gem"!! I took this book with me down the Grand this past month and had trouble putting it down. If you have any interest in what it might have been like to boat the Grand pre-dam in the 50's then this is a must read. He has incredible historic detail and photos from trips back in the day. Awesome work Tom!!!

Wow! Thanks Chris! When writing the book, I had in mind that folks would take it down-canyon and read it as they traveled. It's great to hear it was an addition to your journey! All the best, tom

Got to agree it's a great read, and getting to see the replica Gem while Tom had it out on tour really put it into perspective how little these boats really were. Gem makes my 14' raft look palatial in comparison.

Where would I find it in the Denver area. It's on amazon but I'm an immediate gratification kind of guy.

Might give Down River Equipment a call at (303) 467-2144 and see if they have any left in stock. Yours, tom
