This fascinating & masterfully written book is considered one of the outdoor world's finest works. The LOS ANGELES DAILY NEWS awarded NEVER TURN BACK their highest rating for a book: "It's the best thing to come across this reviewer's desk in recent memory," wrote Brett Pauly of the NEWS. "Bully for Watters!" said the SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE about author Ron Watters' wonderfully told story. William Bushnell of the Library Research Associates called it: "Magnificent...told with sparkling clarity...truly inspirational." NEVER TURN BACK is the unforgettable biography of whitewater sport's most famous personality Dr. Walt Blackadar. Blackadar stunned the outdoor world when he ran the treacherous rapids of Turnback Canyon on the remote & wild Alsek River in Canada & Alaska. What made his solo journey through Turnback Canyon even more remarkable was the fact that he was 49 years old, an age when most athletes are long retired. Blackadar's story is powerful & uplifting. It is the story of the human spirit facing & overcoming great odds. Joining book reviewers in praise for the book are outdoor authorities such as World Whitewater Champion Barb Wright: "A work of art!" Other reviews: "A triumph! I couldn't put it down." "Uncommonly well-written & well-edited." "An inspiring book." Available in paper, hardcover, or library binding from Great Rift Press, 1135 East Bonneville, Pocatello, ID 83201.
