Product Description & Reviews

"A truly enchanting book."-The New Yorker"The excitement, anxiety and hardships are slipped naturally into a story whichconjures up pictures with the effortlessness of good and restrained writing."-The Times, LondonWritten with Patterson's characteristic sharp wit and observation, The Dangerous River chronicles the year he spent battling the frigid temperatures and wild waters along the Nahanni in 1927. Patterson originally traveled to Canada's Northwest Territories with hopes of finding gold in the river and clues to the mysterious murder of a prospector. Instead, he fell in love with the landscape and through his meticulously recorded journals and hauntingly beautiful photographs he introduced the now-famous Nahanni River to the world. Included in this printing are Patterson's own black-and-white photographs, including the first photos to be taken of the falls of the Nahanni.
