Format: Paperback
I met Peter Bray at an "Adventure Travel" show at Olympia the year after his crossing. He had a table, a few photographs and not much else, and was trying to raise interest in his next challenge. When I casually asked what he had done I almost fell over when he told me. For what he had achieved he was little known - I though he should have been the keynote speaker, not a mere exhibitor. Perhaps this is because people confuse rowing and canoeing, but for those of us who have a little more knowledge this is one act that fully deserves to be called awesome.
Anyway now I've read and enjoyed the book. Don't expect Shakespearian prose, but rather a relatively matter-of-fact account of overcoming scepticism, set-backs and wilderness to complete a feat that may never be repeated, with some earthy (watery?) humour through in. It reminds me of reading about that mad Swede who cycled to Everest and then climed it without oxygen (Ultimate High, Goran Kropp - similar level of insanity). For anyone interested in extreme endurance adventures, this is a must read.

Format: Paperback
Quite an amazing book by an amazing man. Very readable. You can almost start to imagine the struggles he went through, although a touch of humour is maintained throughout the book.
Not just one for kayaking enthusiasts - should be a good read for anyone.

An account of such a journey does not require verbosity, as such Pete sticks to the facts and I found this really refreshing. This book has definitely inspired me to pursue my own goals.

Excellent.
