They start at 200$ used on eBay or Amazon. Has not been in print for years. Great old book, full of fun stories from back in the day. Many of the run descriptions and shuttle info is out of date now, but still a great reference and read.

Browse used book stores.  I've seen two copies over the past few years, one in Poulsbo and one maybe in the Pike Place market.  Both were priced at  maybe $5.  I'd sell you one of my copies, but I'm hording them as part of my investment portfolio.

I have one I'd let go for $300. Above average condition.

Wow, thought you were joking about the $200, but low and behold that's what google came up with.

I think if you keep an eye open you'll see some pop up on Amazon that are way more reasonable. They show up in used bookstores online.

While, as BW noted, the run descriptions and shuttle info might be somewhat out of date, it's worth noting that such info was never overly detailed.  That was the beauty of Korb's guide - you got the gist, but could still explore and discover on your own without feeling your hand was being held.  The important thing is that the rivers are still there, waiting to be paddled. 

Bonus points for anyone finding a copy of the original, blue cover edition that is hand written rather than typed.

I don't know if anyone knows the author or what the publishing arrangement was for that book, but there are pretty cost effective ways to keeping these books in print. Some of these resources might be cool to try to preserve with scanning/print on demand.

That's rather pricey. Is the book not for sale in pdf anywhere for cheaper?
