Rowdy and acrobatic, athletic and impassioned, a team of the world's best kayakers and adventurers tackles Tibet's most remote, dangerous, and white-knuckle-inducing stretches of white water, the fabled Tsangpo River. Outdoor enthusiast and journalist Heller is along for the ride, embodied ably by reader Patrick Lawlor, who brings a tough, outdoorsy, muscular quality to the narration. His impressions of the "Dude, where's my kayak?" characters and a rough-and-ready Aussie steal the show, though this story is riddled with real danger and intrigue. Heller's skillfully descriptive prose brings listeners to the brink of the icy waters and plunges them in. D.J.B. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
