From National Geographic:Thank you for taking the time to review your order. We apologize that this map was defective, and we understand that our customer service office has already contacted you regarding a solution.
Shows and classes rapids in the upper river areas of NC and VA. Shows dams and portage areas as well as outfitters and access points along the way. I couldn't find rapids and classes of rapids in the New River Gorge area, which is the only thing that kept me from rating this map 5 stars.
