"The Last River" is the breathtaking account of a world-class kayak team's quest to make the first descent through the foam, fury, and unexplored mysteries of the treacherous Tsangpo Gorge in the remote heart of Tibet. This is the story of that ill-fated adventure and a riveting evocation of one of the planet's wildest and most alluring places.
