Worlds to Discover
Kayak Adventures One Inch above the Water
Jim Payne’s third book about his fascinating long-distance kayak voyages. This volume covers four of his most recent adventures:
- Facing breeched dams and loose bulls on the Connecticut River;
- Making his way through alligator-infested swamps of Georgia and Florida on the Chattahoochee River;
- Outguessing rapids and quicksand on the lower Bío Bío River in Chile;
- Dodging towboats and exploding fish on the Ohio River, from Cincinnati to Brandenburg, Kentucky.
Through thick and thin, Jim may have stumbled into a new theory of self-education: "If you want to learn from your mistakes,” he says, “you need lots of them."
