From School Library Journal
YA-- Explorers in any field are persistent, even foolhardy creatures, but the feats they accomplish inspire awe in us lesser mortals. Long ago, the Yangtze River was vividly described in National Geographic, whetting Bangs' appetite to raft this treacherous river "dragon." This pioneering adventure is detailed with trial, disaster, excitement, and success. Interestingly, the underlying theme of the book is self-exploration--basic human behavior in extreme circumstances, learning to work together, to share, and to appreciate a once-in-a-lifetime experience. A fascinating account with great YA appeal.
