About the Author
Suzanne Welander began canoeing in 1999. Since then, she has completed hundreds of trips exploring Georgia's diverse streams or eddy-hopping down the Ocoee in her whitewater canoe. She has a special passion for wilderness, stoked by multi-day self-supported canoe trips in remote parts of Alaska, Canada, Montana, and Arizona, in addition to canoe-camping getaways in wild corners of Georgia. Suzanne's curiosity continually draws her to explore sections of rivers she has not yet paddled and to monitor the changes at those she revisits. She's also a half-decent whitewater canoe slalom racer. When she isn't paddling or writing about rivers, Suzanne works for a North Georgia organic farm and plays saxophone in the Seed and Feed Marching Abominable. Suzanne lives in Atlanta with her husband who's also an avid canoeist, their young son, and a small flock of chickens. Veteran paddler, Bob Sehlinger, has led canoeing trips throughout eastern North America and is the former president of the Eastern Professional River Outfitters Association. He is the creator of the Unofficial Guide travel series and a recipient of the Lowell Thomas Gold Award for journalistic excellence. Founder and publisher of Menasha Ridge Press, Sehlinger lives in Birmingham, AL, where he enjoys mountain biking and playing the drums.
