I am completely honored to be one of the authors of this beautiful book from Stormbird Press. I told the story of our visit to the Atnarko River, which we paddled in late August 2015–it was a grizzly bear rafting tour in Bella Coola, the gateway to the Great Bear Rainforest. Mom and mom-in-law came with us. Definitely one of the best times of my life. I’ve also worked closely with some of the other authors, and got a chance to read the entire proof. It’s a beautiful collection of river stories, the perfect way to celebrate World River’s Day this Saturday.
