"From the bottom of our planet's most awesome landscape, Kevin Fedarko has found and rescued a great American tall tale that just happens to be true. As a boatman, Fedarko knows this world intimately. As a writer, he'll make you understand it, savor it, and ultimately love it as you never have before. Here is an instant classic of adventure literature--a story shot through with bravura but also touched by the rarest kind of grandeur."--Hampton Sides "editor-at-large at Outside magazine and author of Blood and Thunder and Ghost Soldiers " "Journalist and part-time river guide Kevin Fedarko has produced a work of jaw-dropping scope and page-turning action in this account of a speed record of rowing the length of the Grand Canyon that remains unmatched.... An unforgettable read, rendered in vivid, sometimes majestic, prose."--Christine Wald-Hopkins, Pima County Public Library (Arizona), "S "This spellbinding true story leaps from the inner workings of Glen Canyon Dam and the psyches of river guides to boat-eating whirlpools and a wooden river dory named the Emerald Mile. Kevin Fedarko's prodigious research and breathtaking narrative transcend the Southwest. It's a roaring adventure with wave after wave of spills and thrills. Let's hope Fedarko owns the movie rights."--Bill Broyles, Pima County Public Library (Arizona), "Sout "The Emerald Mile is the rarest of creations-a magical convergence of words and paper, wood and water, rock and sky, human character and cosmic caprice. Can an adventure story be as beautiful as it is heart-stopping and exciting? This one is, and Fedarko's book is as inspiring as a dory itself, flying down a wild river. I have no doubt it will become an instant classic, a timeless chronicle of what can still be legitimately called the American spirit."--Bob Shacochis "author of Swimming in the Volcano and Easy in the Islands "
