Author: Richard Bangs; foreword: Ed
There's something for everyone in
this captivating collection of true-life
adventures from paddling in Africa,
to biking in Burgundy, and whale watching
in British Columbia. Travel dreamers
and doers alike will cast away to the
wild side of nature with these 16 adventure
stories from Richard Bangs, master adventurer
and award-winning author.
The journey begins in Africa on the
Kilombero and Rufiji rivers. The often
treacherous rafting journey through
standing waves, yawning holes, whirlpools
and fast eddies whisks a reader through
herds of ornery hippos and snapping
crocodiles -- and that's in just the
first hour of paddling! From Africa,
Bangs takes readers to France, where
they discover with him the joy of abandoning
maps, pointing down the road less travelled,
and embracing whatever it may hold.
Peru, Idaho, Borneo, Marrakech, Indonesia
-- Bangs has visited adventure wherever
it lives and written about it to share
with those who want to take part in
their own adventure or those who want
a vicarious experience from the comfort
of their own homes.
Captivating, inspiring, and spiked
with Bangs' terrific sense of humor,
these adventures will fascinate travellers
from all walks of life.
