Summary

Meet Henry David Thoreau, US Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas, and other intrepid explorers as you travel northern Maine's rugged woods and waters. In a wild country of ledge and trees that stubbornly resists encroaching civilization, find a young couple padding through the trials, triumphs, and sheer mental and physical exhaustion of wilderness travel severely testing their ability to get along and even complete the trip. Fill your ears with roaring rapids and yodeling loons. Smell pungent spruce and dank swamps. Encounter moose and majestic sunrises cloaked in morning mist. A few spoken words, and you will find yourself deep in the evergreen forest.

poor pronounciations too distracting

the reader ruins the pronounciations of too many words. It made me cringe every time.

torn

This book has some good points but all the self reflection should have maybe stayed in a journal and not have become a book. Maybe that is more on me for not doing my research and just buying it because its about the Allagash. The historical knowledge was really good though and clearly research was done.

The guy reading it has never been to Maine before with those pronunciations, just cringe worthy. I dont regret using a credit on it but I wouldn't recommend it, that's for sure. Maybe he and I just see the river differently and that's ok by me.
