Hello fellow canoe and kayak enthusiasts!
As debates about public recreation on rivers rise across the U.S., we thought you would benefit in knowing about the recently published book, Public Rights on Rivers. For the last several decades, our organization has been researching the subject or river law and having conversations with attorneys and other river experts. The book is a compilation of river history, acts of US Congress, Supreme Court decisions, and others cases and facts. In our research, we haven't seen another book out there that looks in depth at the law through the centuries, and how river recreation today is simply a continuation of the already established law.

So WHY should you get Public Rights on Rivers?

1) Public rights on rivers have been repeatedly confirmed by the highest court in the nation, the U.S. Supreme Court. Nevertheless, these rights are routinely ignored, disregarded, and denied, on thousands of miles of rivers, by landowners, law enforcement personnel, and government agencies.

2) The new book Public Rights on Rivers is the solution. It will greatly expand your understanding of your place in the history of river uses, and your rights to canoe, kayak, raft, fish, fowl, and walk along the banks of rivers, in every state.

3) In addition, when you get this book you enable NOR to send literature about public rights on rivers to newspapers, radio, and television stations across the nation, and to local, state and federal government agencies. You help re-establish your rights on the thousands of miles of rivers where they are being denied. And you help hold rivers in trust for future generations.

This is the FIRST book to fully discuss river uses through the centuries, the development of river law, and public rights on rivers today, in every state.
Get it. Know it. Share it.

Also, here is the direct link to a free one-page river law handout. Feel free to pass this along to your club or other friends you think would be interested!

We hope this eye-opening book will help to better serve you in your river conflicts and issues. Thank you for your time. Please feel free to ask us any questions.
