Über diesen Titel


This is a great adventure story. No one gets killed. There's lots of checkers-playing. It's just low-key occupants taking in the sights and trying to stay on top of things on a home-made raft floating down the Yukon. No big budget or PR. Just curiosity and gumption. Plenty of nifty human/nature interactions along the way, too. Not much better than a raft, is there? (OK, a tree fort ranks up there.) ...A raft and some friends hanging out for a summer, drifting along. ...And all the adventures along the way. Let the Type-A's finance and exploit their uber-complex high-tech Everest assaults. There's plenty of room for adventures on a more human and natural scale, with a wider range for cultural discovery. (Rumination has no place in the do-or-die binary decision-making of extreme adventure.) Start nailing and sawing, see what you can make with the funds at hand, then shove off! Marvel at the clear water and funky characters flowing by. Plenty enough adventures will find you that way as well. More tales like this, and more folks taking more trips like this, would be more better.

Mail order dealer since 1986. I have about 95,000 books listed with ABE. Formerly I issued catalogs, primarily under three headings: Natural History; Travel, Exploration & Sporting; and Americana & the West. My mailing lists, however, were very small and specialized so I am enjoying the much larger audience that the Internet provides. Also, I have greatly expanded my holdings so they are no longer restricted to the three areas above.
