An interesting work on a somewhat shoestring expedition to canoe the length of the river. Descriptions of long paddles across the massive reservoirs convey the scale of damming along the course of the waterway. Includes an upbeat stop at an Indian reservation, with some discourse on Native American canoes, and a brief yet impressive meeting with President Gerald Ford. Sketches not photographs, and a bit haphazard in style, but a worthwhile book.
