Although it's not advisable to judge a book by its cover, the photographs gracing the cover of Travels with a Kayak make it hard not to be intrigued, even without reading a word. A cowboy, a Buddhist monk, an English bobby, and an Indian holy man stare out from separate photos, each holding a well-used kayak paddle. Even if you've never remotely considered whitewater kayaking, Whit Deschner sure makes it clear that you are missing an awful lot of fun if you don't give it a try. Travels with a Kayak follows the death-defying author around the world as he drags his kayak from country to country in search of life. Readers won't be disappointed as they join Deschner for a humorous ride through New Zealand, Turkey, Indonesia, Pakistan, the U.S., India, Japan, and all over the rest of the world.From the Inside Flap:
As the model for Edvard Munch's famous Scream, Whit Deschner is probably someone you already know and don't realize it. Now join him as he drags his kayak from country to country, through an insane world of whitewater! From sheep-infested New Zealand, to the body-filled waters of Nepal; from Guinness-rich Britain to alcohol-poor Utah and Pakistan; from running amuck on the creeks of Bali to Private Purtz's long-lost diary of the Grand Canyon's first descent; from the biblical Turkish Euphrates to the radiated, mutated wildlife of the Everglades. And that's not all! There's: SEX! The lipstick on the mirror read: John, you were the greatest last night. Love, Bob. VIOLENCE! She was a Jain, a strict vegetarian like me. But she kept putting ketchup on her steaks. I couldn't stand it. I went ga ga. I used an axe. Bullets are so expensive these days. INSIGHT! Inside it was dark. NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCES: I know my life passed before my eyes but Ted was blocking my vision. A! ! ND, OF COURSE, KAYAKING! Evidence of hypothermia was easy to ascertain: the blue lips, the glazed eyes, rigor mortis setting in quickly followed by those accompanying the victim going through his wallet and divvying up his boating gear.
Tag along with Deschner's zany and devil-may-care escapades of questionable facts and unleashed humor (along with unleashed facts and questionable humor) as he paddles down some of the world's most renowned and obscure rivers (and across a couple of its swamps).
