Readers will feel the bite of icy waters as the author careens down the most dangerous sections of the Yangtze River - so treacherous the Chinese government has closed it to boaters - and descends for the first time ever Chile's Futaleufu, one of the most beautiful and dangerous rivers in the world. Profiles of some of the great expedition leaders of our time, including polar man Will Steger, as well as great raconteurs, like famed African photographer Peter Beard. Set against a backdrop of politics, environmental laws and governments gone awry, this new collection of 20 stories from around the world have a common goal: to inform the author, and readers, as best he can about how the world really works.
Big Game Fishing Journal Review
"It's been some time since I have come across a true adventure book that is actually true. An exciting yet informative read...is certainly as entertaining as most fiction novels of our time and it defines the author as a voice to be heard in the outdoor writing world."
