River by Colin Fletcher


One Man's Journey Down The Colorado, Source To Sea

by Colin Fletcher

Title Details

Audio Original


When, at age sixty-seven, backpack guru Colin Fletcher decided to make a six-month, single-handed, foot-and-raft expedition down the full length of the Colorado River, it was not only for adventure but because he needed "something to pare the fat off my soul...to make me grateful, again, for being alive." From its Green River source in Wyoming to its black conclusion in Mexico's Gulf of California, the 1,700-mile Colorado is America's second-longest river and has some of the most beautiful vistas. In recounting his journey, Fletcher treats the reader to a host of dramatic, moving and hilarious experiences. Through him, we are able to wake up every morning to fresh views, new people, exotic wildlife and the rewards of wilderness solitude. RIVER is a glorious journey.
