For a 1998 American kayaking team, the Tsangpo River, deep in Tibet, was the ultimate white-water challenge, requiring years of research, training, and fund-raising. For Dennis Boutsikaris, the text has a challenge of its own--how to make a third-person narrative full of technical information (and no maps or pictures) immediate and engaging. He succeeds with a well-paced and clear-voiced reading that involves the listener in every stage of the trip. You feel the adrenaline, the frustration at obstacles, and the helplessness of being at risk in a remote and hostile land. If you like high-octane adventure, this is for you. Think of it as "Into White Water." J.B.G. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 01]
