    1. That I did not finish this book should not be viewed as a poor recommendation. This audio book was very good and I would recommend it. I was just the wrong reader.This book/author fell victim to poor timing on my part and my own familiarity with the southwest border and Mexico.I enjoyed the first 10 chapters but stopped reading because I mistakenly listened to this book after Bill Bryson's A WALK IN THE WOODS, and after seeing the movie, WILD-- I grew weary of the genre, not necessarily of this [...]

    2. I loved this book. Keith canoes the Rio Grande from El Paso to the Gulf. The book has you laughing out loud and on the edge of your chair holding your breath! If you love the river you will love Keith Bowden's book.
