About the Author

Charles Wilkins wrestled Don Starkell's mountainous diary into the classic work of adventure travel Paddle to the Amazon, praised by the New York Times Book Review as "a model expeditionary journal." He is the winner of three National Magazine Awards and has been a finalist for the Writers' Trust Non-Fiction Prize, among other awards. His acclaimed nonfiction includes The Circus at the Edge of the Earth and Walk to New York, and he is the co-author, with Gordie Howe, of the bestseller After the Applause. He divides his time between Thunder Bay and Muskoka, ON.

Reviews

"Rarely have I been so drop-jaw riveted by a book, so won over by a writer's chops and heart, so happy to be dry."--Mary Roach, author of Stiff "An inspiring read and a great adventure tale"--Library Journal "A thrilling adventure on the high seas... deftly narrated with Wilkins' trademark humor and guile. Infused with a wit, charm, and sense of wonder akin to Bill Bryson's travelogues, the playful but epic tale stands as a testament to the human spirit stripped bare by the power of nature." --Booklist "[Wilkins] is starkly--though still poetically--honest ...The magic of Wilkins' storytelling is in the fact that none of the misery makes the journey seem any less enticing."-- Kirkus Reviews
