about

A modern-day, real life adventure, this book will take readers along for a rollicking ride through South America on a race to the bottom of the Earth.

"In his new book, Eugene Buchanan, a renowned journalist and paddler, recounts the wild race between his team of explorers and a Polish group in 2008. Both teams were in search of Incan artifacts in part of Peru’s Colca Canyon. Expert first-person narrative tells of incredible adventure in a riveting tale of ambition, peril, and discovery.
