Same "Emerald Mile" presentation tonight in Albuquerque as posted on the Adobe Whitewater Club site and local kayak meetup group site.
Wednesday, January 29, 2014 – SPECIAL MEETING: The Emerald Mile: The Epic Story of the Fastest Ride Through the Heart of the Grand Canyon by Kevin Fedarko,
a former river guide himself.. “The Emerald Mile
is the rarest of creations–a magical convergence of words and paper, wood and water, rock and sky, human character and cosmic caprice. Can an adventure story be as beautiful as it is heart-stopping and exciting? This one is. Fedarko’s book is as inspiring as a dory itself, flying down a wild river. I have no doubt it will become a classic, a timeless chronicle of what can still be legitimately called the American spirit.” By Bob Shacochis,
author of Swimming in the Volcano
and The Woman Who Lost Her Soul.
