Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

The acclaimed author of Blue Highways and PrairyErth chronicles his journey across America's waterways in his dory Nikawa (River Horse), encountering strange people, hostile cities, and hair-raising dangers. Reprint.


Review:

"At times, the stories are so good and coincidences so convenient that readers may wonder if the author is making them up. But Least Heat-Moon, who lives in Columbia, Mo., is a wonderfully descriptive and digressive writer."

Bob Minzesheimer, USA Today, 12/02/1999

Review:

"It is the finest American book I have read for years....[It] is a love poem to capture the heart of America...."

Gavin Esler, Literary Review, March 2000

The author of Blue Highways and PrairyErth takes us on a lifetime voyage full of imagery, insight and appreciation. --Cleveland Plain Dealer In his most ambitious journey ever, William Least Heat-Moon sets off aboard a small boat named Nikawa ( river horse in Osage) from the Atlantic at New York Harbor in hopes of entering the Pacific near Astoria, Oregon. He and his companion, Pilotis, struggle to cover some 5,000 watery miles, often following in the wakes of our most famous explorers, from Henry Hudson to Lewis and Clark. En route, the voyagers confront massive floods, dangerous weather, and their own doubts about whether they can complete the trip. But the hard days yield incomparable pleasures: generous strangers, landscapes untouched since Sacajawea saw them, riverscapes flowing with a lively past, and the growing belief that efforts to protect our lands and waters are beginning to pay off. Teeming with humanity, humor, and high adventure, River-Horse is an unsentimental and original arteriogram of our nation at the millennium. Bookseller Inventory # LVN9780140298604
