The voyage began in the lunar terrain of the Peruvian Andes, where coca leaf is the only remedy against altitude sickness. It continued down rapids so fierce they could swallow a raft in a split second. It ended six months and 4,200 miles later, where the Amazon runs gently into the Atlantic.

Great kayaking story and armchair adventure, but even more the story of the obstacles within us. Surprising more expeditions don't flounder! Great writing, great personality sketches.

If you have watched 'Road Rules' on MTV, this book is for you. Joe Kane chronicles his travels with nine other people journeying from the very beginning of the Amazon River up in the Andes Mountains to the very end at the Atlantic Ocean-a trip of 4200 miles. The group cheated death several times. Joe Kane writes of the sickness, villages, Indians, comaraderie, and tension that inevitably rises in a group that works together and faces death almost every day. This book is educational as well as entertaining. You will not want to put this book down!
