A collection of 27 tales from river runners and outdoors writers about rafting trips gone wrong. These stories range from the hilarious to the horrifying: men overboard, capsized boats, bear attacks, whirlpools and waves that whiten the hair, and tourist encounters that are even worse. Includes excellent writing from Pete Fromm, John Nichols, Edward Abbey, R.M. Patterson, Craig Childs, Brad Dimock and other well-known outdoors writers. The collection is one-third previously published pieces and two-thirds new material.
