Quotes & Awards

  • “Heller nimbly blends the history of the region into his gripping modern trek, as the crew lives up to the legacy of the great explorers before them. An offhand remark made to the paddlers early in the journey—that their story could be the kayaking equivalent of Into Thin Air—has come true in the best possible way.”

    " Not a review so much as a tip for those who may need to remember the concept that an object floating down river remains straight until a person is added. "

    " Did y'all know that the only real way to live is to be poor and endanger your life? This could have been a great adventure story but the sanctimonious narrator destroys that possibility. "

    " I liked reading Heller's accounts of this trip in Outside Magazine well enough, but reading the book was a fairly --dry-- redo; longer, but just not personal or philosophical enough. "

    " I know a bunch of guys that were on the expedition, but not the writer. It was funny to read the parts about the expedition leaded, Scott Lindgren. Peter Heller did not like him at all...I wonder why? "

    " I really enjoy this story about a crazy trip down the Tsangpo river in Tibet. Peter Heller writes a good descriptive book on the travels in 2002 to the undiscovered river. Well worth reading, "

    " there is another side to this, the video expedition. The book is fact and exciting. Well put together. It shows the talent of these boaters, and can be enjoyed by padlers and non paddlers alike. "

    " - A mystery about Tibet’s own land. It makes this country seen more real aside from the stories of the Himalayas. Each page was breath taking as the trip unfolded. You also found yourself wondering if they would encounter any unusual events. "
