My husband and I just bought our first canoe, an Old Town Saranac 146.
We've taken it out once, on a small local lake here in SE Georgia. We love it, and are fans for life.
Dh has scout/canoeing experience, so he was a great teacher and encourager, and I am chafing at
the bit to be out on the water again. How nice to find a story that gets me there, if only in my mind.
The Mr.'s Shaffer had quite the voyage, and I felt like I was right there with them the whole time. Rain,
heat, exhaustion, doubt, joy....did I mention rain? And wind; oh, the wind! I was frustrated at the mean
lock lady, and worried for John's safety when he was alone and fearing attack.
While I don't intend to ever have such a journey, I loved spending this time with these two, and it has
fueled my eagerness to get out on my own river, the Altamaha, and take a 'River Run' next year. Thank
you for a great, moving book, and all the adventures I had along with you!
I was totally amazed at the descriptions of the wild life, the river, and the people they encountered. As I said, it was hard to put down... If you want to go on a great adventure without leaving the comfort and safety of your home, you can't go wrong in reading this marvelous account of what it's like to be on the water for several months and all the discoveries you'll make... it was simply awesome.... Randy
In the open sky. Although there were times I was most grateful to nestle down in my comforter and
experience it all through their eyes! So much rain and wind and heat and noodles and...Spam! But they
seemed to find the best in each situation as they learned to treasure the simple things- a cold drink of
fresh water, an apple offered by a new friend, a shower, dry clothes and a clear, star-filled night sky.
This is a book to be enjoyed by all.
