From the Publisher:

This beautifully designed trade paperback is notch bound for years of service both in the library and out on the river.

From the Author:

Three of us collarorated on the book. Each of us has spent two to three decades as whitewater guides, and it was there that we encountered the captivating tale of Buzz Holmstrom. Holmstrom's solo river trips are astonishing, but what raised above other whitewater heroes were his writings. His humility and keen perception of the beauty and power of the river put him in a class all his own.
