Hell Or High Waterby Peter Heller
Synopses & Reviews
A grand expeditionÂ—an elite kayaking tea‛s heroic conquest of the worl‛s last untraveled river
The Tsangpo Gorge in southeastern Tibet, sacred to the Buddhists and the inspiration for Shangri La, has lured explorers and adventurers since its discovery. As a river-running challenge, it is more difficult than any stretch of white water ever attempted. The finest expedition paddlers on earth have tried. Several have died. All have failed. Until now.
In January 2002 a team of seven kayakers launched a meticulously planned assault of the gorge. Accompanying them was author Peter Heller, a world-class kayaker in his own right. Filled with history, white-knuckle drama, and mutiny in one of the worl‛s most remote locations, Hell or High Water is a grand and riveting epic.
