"The author, who has tried nearly every form of adventure in nearly every country of the world, for years had an ambition to voyage downthe Columbia River from its source to its mouth. Curiously enough, althoug h the Columbia is one of the world's great rivers, and perhaps the grandest, scenically, of any, there is no record that any man has ever made the complete journey from the glacial sources to tidewater. 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.
