The Hudson River By Peter Lourie I recommend to only certain types of readers who enjoy reading about adventures, white water rafting, and who might want to experience one day too, the Hudson River. I wish that Peter Lourie would have included more details and specifics about his adventures and days in the Hudson River even more than he had in this book. Although, I love the pictures included in this book because it shows the specific beautiful scenery to provide evidence of where he was at through the adventure. Overall, this was a great book!
