Colin has traveled down four of the longest rivers of the world (the Nile, the Amazon, the Yangtze, and the Mississippi) but he is such and adventuress that he doesn't think that that is enough and wants to find another river travel go down. He just gets off of one of his trips and he is already looking for another river to travel down. He looks through books and comes across the fifth longest river in the world (the Yenisey). No one has ever traveled all the way down the Yenisey River so Colin thinks it would be great to be the first to travel the world's last unchallenged river. Colin gets three other guys to travel down the river with him. They barley gather enough money and sponsorships to pay for this trip. They finally get enough money and head to Mongolia. During the trip down the river they encounter many obstacles including, flipping the raft, losing the film bag, and also once the film bag is gone Colin takes a kayak and travels down the river by himself after the bag with only pants on. He has to survive by himself for many days well he waits for his crew to come down and get him even though he keeps thinking that they might have already passed. But in the end they find each other and get back on their way down the river. The major message of this book is to always go for what you want no matter what it takes to get you there. I really like this book. It is very interesting from the get go, the whole time I was glued to the pages waiting to see what will happen next. The one thing I didn¿t like was the ending. I won¿t ruin it for you guys but let¿s just say he does not end it very well. I think that people should read this book especially if they like adventure stories cause this is one of the best adventure stories I have ever read. Over all I would give this book 9 out of 10.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
