4.0 out of 5 stars good photographs June 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't know f it was reading it on my Ipad or if it really was something that happened from changing to digital format but the pictures ended up layered in some spots. Sometimes pictures on top of pictures not to bad because you still see portions of al the pictures. Although it is hard to red the narration when it is over or under the pictures. Over all it was an enjoyable short read.

I have always wanted to raft down the Colorado River but never had the chance. This book is the next best thing. The pictures are beautiful and the description lets you get a feel for what it might be like to make the trip and you don't have to leave your living room. I enjoyed this trip very much.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Boat Tour In Your Own Chair... July 10, 2013
By James
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Take A Ride On The River" is a very enjoyable book that feels like you're experiencing a tour down the Colorado River with the river guide pointing out the sites and scenes along the way while filling in the blanks with interesting history.

Seven states owe their water supply, in part, to this river, yet few understand the richness and depth of history that is found along the route of this body of water.

This is a true education, from sites, to cultural anthropology, and a very enjoyable, well-written book for anyone to read again and again.

Take a Ride on the River is a book with stunning images and great description. You
get the sense that you too are floating down the Colorado, as Audrey Lee narrates and
navigates. This book has it all: a history lesson, beautiful pictures and the promise
that something different is just around the next bend. I highly recommend this book!

More About the Author

Audrey Lee began writing in her teens and has made books, writing, oral storytelling and now publishing the driving force of her life.

Using many allegories, she likes to bring real problems and situations to readers in both an enjoyable and yet insightful way. She writes both fiction and non-fiction to share with others her love of words and profound realizations. And yet, she does so in a way that enlightens while entertains the hearts, minds and spirits of those who join her world through books.

Audrey Lee has written since she was 15 years old; however, began in earnest in 2001. At that time she began writing and sending Christmas stories in lieu of sending Christmas letters or cards. It has become her tradition to celebrate the season of giving with an original short story for her loved ones. Each one is an allegory that represents a concept she has learned or problem she has struggled with during the year.

The catalyst came when Audrey began adventure into the world of storytelling. Soon, she realized that storytelling was a big part of her past with bedtime stories of Dumbo told by Uncle Doc and Grandpap stories told by Dad. As a parent, she told improvised stories to her boys with their teddy bears, not even remembering that her Uncle used to do for her as well.

Oddly enough, it was this newfound passion of storytelling "finding her" that encouraged her to publish the stories that she had written over the years. "Once Upon a Storytime at Christmas" is the compilation of Christmas stories that she traditionally writes each year during the Holidays, so look for more stories to come.

Audrey currently teaches workshops, appears in and produces storytelling events, private readings and stories, produces video stories and book trailers as well as writes and has published nine books. The books, video and audio recordings of all her works are available on her website and Schedule appointments for all of Audrey's events: classes, workshops, speaking engagements, storytelling, mystic stories or readings by contacting:
