Overview

When paddlers Alan S. Kesselheim and his wife were starting their family, each of their three kids unintentionally experienced, before birth, a major river expedition. Later, Eli, Sawyer, and Ruby grew up on other river trips, joining the Kesselheims in canoes as infants and toddlers and becoming adept paddlers and campers before the age of ten. Recognizing a unique opportunity to celebrate their childrens' transitions to adulthood, the family returned to those "birth" rivers and repeated each of the three original paddling trips. Over a period of four years, as each child reached the age of thirteen, and across a span of geography from the Arctic Circle to Mexico, the family of five shared inspirational travel adventures on the water. A moving testimonial for allowing children to experience nature firsthand, Let Them Paddle is a captivating tale of a family coming of age.

Alan S. Kesselheim has worked as a freelance writer for thirty years. He is the author of ten books and hundreds of magazine articles in a handful of publications, including Canoe & Kayak magazine. In addition to his writing work, Kesselheim has taught writing workshops throughout North America and teaches occasional classes at Montana State University. He is best known for his exploits as a wilderness adventurer and canoeist and is a veteran of many extended expeditions, including two year-long canoe journeys across Canada. Kesselheim has incorporated his three children into his wilderness adventure lifestyle and has every expectation that they will carry on the tradition. He lives in Bozeman, Montana, with his wife and children.
