The book is the result of a journal I kept to record the kayaking and fishing/camping trip I took with my son and nephew along e course of the Des Plaines River in and around the Chicago area. The book would serve as a gift to them, while also being a motivations book for me and hopefully others. It's also a book for the lover of fishing, paddle sports and the outdoors. It focuses on the outings the three of us learned throughout the 110-mile trek. It s a book about bonding and a man's search for answers to questions and is a true account.lt also looks at life through the lens of two seven year-old boys, who were surprisingly up for the challenge of the trip, which was their idea, hoping to re-create a Huck Finn type adventure.
