Dan River guide available for holidays / December 03, 2009
Anyone who enjoys exploring rivers, river towns, and natural and historic places will want a copy of the newly published “An Insider’s Guide to the Dan River in North Carolina and Virginia.”

Planning an escape is easy and enjoyable with the guide. Special “Off the map” features lead visitors to nearby points of interest. More than 200 color photographs and text describe scenery, including interesting geological and historical features such as the historic batteau navigation system in the Dan River, which makes it possible to float the Dan in Rockingham County even during periods of low water.

The guide retails for $24.95 and is printed on durable, waterproof paper. A companion guide for the Smith River, a tributary of the Dan is also available. Proceeds support the work of the Dan River Basin Association to preserve and promote the natural and cultural resources of the Dan River Basin through recreation, education and stewardship.
