The adventure story of an extremely hazardous canoe trip taken just for the hell of it up one of the more obscure tributaries of the Amazon. Harrison's tale is compelling, full of suspense, humor and wonderful descriptions of Amazon wildlife, all told in down-to-earth unpretentious language with disarming honesty.
