5.0 out of 5 stars
the book is like the expedition goal, it's gotta be finished, 16 Sept. 2001
absolutely rivetting, there is no other way to describe it. From the sponsorship beginings to the nightmare of actually finding the top, to the amazing challenge of 4000 miles of vastly different water conditions, the narrative does not give you a chance for breath as you tumble awkwardly at first down the mighty river. One of the best books I've ever read, you can't help but cheer on the amateur-kayaking author as he conquers what professionals give up on. I can't recommend it enough, a triumph of the human spirit, action, adventure, and a lotta water.
