Front Cover
Oregon State University Press, 2006 - Sports & Recreation - 149 pages
As a river guide on the Klamath River in northern California, Robin Carey fantasized about attempting "an entire whitewater river in upstream mode." Years later, Carey and his son Dev, both experienced river runners, set out to kayak up the wild Klamath from its mouth at the Pacific Ocean. A test of the limits of physical endurance, the river ascent also forces Carey to work out tensions with his grown son and come to terms with a painful past haunted by a legacy of destructive family relationships.
