Review:

The beautiful Columbia River can be wild and unpredictable, which means it's perfect for an epic North American canoe adventure. From Columbia Lake (its source in the Canadian Rockies) all 1,200 miles to the Pacific Ocean, Robin Cody finally takes the 82-day trip that started with an idle but persistent thought: "a guy could probably canoe it." And Cody has all that's required (love of river, canoeing know-how, writing ease, and self-effacing humor) to take the trip and tell the tale.

About the Author:

Oregon native Robin Cody is the author of Ricochet River, which also appears on the Oregon State Library’s “150 Oregon Books for the Oregon Sesquicentennial” list, and Another Way the River Has. He lives in Portland.
