River and lake paddling in a sea kayak – not your typical jaunts in the Pacific Northwest. Here’s proof that enchanting journeys are born in dreams of personal exploration. A Canadian paddler heads south to probe the rivers of Washington, searching for “slow pusher” rivers to propel his kayak lazily downstream mile after mile. In the process, overnight voyages and day trips become inspiring expeditions for an amateur paddler and his wife. A travelogue memoir of enlightening adventures set in the magic of the Pacific Northwest.
