A huge fire ensued, and McCain barely escaped before a thousand-pound bomb on his plane exploded, causing a chain reaction with other bombs on surrounding planes. The crew struggled for days to extinguish the fires, the 5,000 men on board experiencing different kinds of hell - some trapped in damaged compartments waiting to die, some battling rivers of flaming jet fuel in order to rescue their buddies. Almost all of them were innocent eighteen-and nineten-year olds, but in an instant they were thrust into a tragedy t hat nearly destroyed the ship and took the lives of 134 men ." from the dj flap.

The Columbia, as an old frontiersman expressed it, is a "he-river," if ever there was one. It runs through mountains nearly its full length, and there is no slack water on the entire course where rapids are sometimes twenty miles long. For rocks, current, speed, volume of water and for scenery, there is no river like it.Mr Freeman's book describes his journey and his adventures, of which there were more than enough for an average man, and illustrates his trip with ma ny wonderful photographs taken along the way." - from the dust-jacket.
