Dangerous River: Adventure on the Nahanni
In the mid-1920s Raymond M. Patterson left a comfortable position with the Bank of England for a life in with wilds of Canada. Here, he hunted, trapped, fished and prospected his way along the rivers he would later write about. This spellbinding book, his most famous account, chronicles his two journeys down the treacherous Nahanni River between the Yukon and the Mackenzie River, spurred on by his irrepressible lust for adventure and his quest for gold. The New Yorker called this "a truly enchanting book."

The author is quite a likeable guy. As the back cover says, this was in a sense, one of the last wilderness adventure of its kind, since plane travel was just starting up. I laughed out loud in spots and was drawn into the environment and the story. Read full review
