Fabulous New Book about the Kaw!

Have you ever experience the beauty and serenity of a float trip down the Kaw (Kansas River)? Seen and heard Bald Eagles, Great Blue Herons, Least Terns and other wildlife from a canoe or kayak? Picnicked on a sandbar and learned about the Kaw and its environs from guest speakers? Camped under a full moon on a sandbar in the Flint Hills? Experienced a sunset at Kaw Point – a historically significant Lewis and Clark site in Kansas?  Craig Thompson has enjoyed many of these outdoor experiences on the Kaw and is eager to share one of he state’s best kept secrets. ALONG THE KAW is a book about a recreational and scenic journey down the Kansas River. Through seventy-five color photographs you will discover the wonders of the Kaw, the beauty of the Kaw, and people enjoying outdoor recreation on the Kaw.

Many of the photographs are brought to life by comments from various people whose lives have been touched in some way by the Kaw. Throughout the book, comments by thirty-nine contributing authors are paired with images of the natural Kaw and images of the recreational Kaw. Many comments point to wildlife diversity and to recreational opportunities afforded by the river. Other comments express feeling of isolation, getting away from the hustle and bustle of life, and the peace of mind the river brings naturally.

ALONG THE KAW is in the class of illustrated photographic books that show the beauty ofKansas. Thompson’s book is the first of its kind to cover the entire length of the Kaw – from Junction City to Kansas CityKansas.
