River Section Overviews
The river chapters begin with a sectional map, distances and times between main landmarks, and a brief overview of what's ahead. This is then followed by more detailed descriptions through the rest of the chapter.
The natural history changes constantly as one floats downstream, so the book covers it as it unfolds, highlighting geology, mammal and plant life throughout each chapter. There are also natural history sections at the ends of the chapters, such as this one from "Dalton Post to Silver Creek".
