Although a little out of date, this book was a very valuable resource for our canoe trip down the Delaware . Some of the canoe livery's were closed and some of the camp sites were no longer in business, however the river remains the same and I wouldn't have wanted to have done the trip without Mr. Letcher's book. The history lessons were very interesting and made the book a good read.
