“Like our best travel writers—Bryson, Heat Moon, Strayed, and Frazier come to mind—Dobson is good company: irreverent, funny, wise.” —Gregory Martin, associate professor of English at the University of New Mexico and author of Mountain City and Stories for Boys

“Part travelogue, part social commentary, Dobson narrates a gritty and multidimensional tale, even as his descriptions of the landscape and the river are as warm as the summer sun. It was a journey I didn’t want to end.” —Sandra Moran, anthropologist and award-winning author of Letters Never Sent and Nudge
