really liked it

Even if Heat-Moon's retelling of his cross-country voyage via rivers does tend to be a bit longer than necessary, his tale is never really dull. Besides, he is a narrator one can grow to like not only for his honesty about his own faults but also for his keen personal observations. My edition could have really benefited, however, by including better maps in place of the almost useless ones that were used. Details of the voyage were too important not to give the readers a better idea about where things were happening.
