Disappointment River by Brian Castner

Disappointment River is a both an historical narrative and travel memoir. In 1789, Alexander Mackenzie traveled 1,200 miles by canoe—on the immense river in Canada that now bears his name—in a failed search for the fabled Northwest Passage. Join author Brian Castner as he tells the story of Mackenzie’s voyage while he personally retraces an epic journey of discovery some 227 years later. Travel by canoe has never seemed so exhausting, so dangerous, and so doable. - Felicia
