The Dangerous River: Adventure on the Nahanni
R M Patterson's best-selling book "The Dangerous River" is back in print in its unabridged version and ready to take readers down the treacherous and challenging waters of the Nahanni River once again. Written with Patterson's characteristic sharp wit and observation, the book chronicles the year he spent battling the temperatures and wild waters as he canoed down the Nahanni in 1927. Patterson originally travelled to Canada's Northwest Territories with hopes of finding gold in the river and clues to the mysterious murder of a prospector. Instead, he fell in love with the landscape and through his meticulously recorded journals and hauntingly beautiful photographs he introduced the world to the Nahanni River, now known as a prime destination for adventure seekers. Included in this newest printing are Patterson's own black-and-white photographs, including the first photos to be taken of the falls of the Nahanni.

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
