The tales focus on river related events that usually have little to do with whitewater. Many don't even take place on a river. All say a lot about the culture of guiding and the people attracted to wild places and the odd things that happen once they get there. These are the stories shared around a campfire after a day on the water. Some are funny, some sad, some quirky, but they all come from personal river experiences and lifelong friendships.

"The 31 exciting, bizarre, tragic and weird river tales in this collection are told by a happy, healthy –and often hung over—guides and outfitters who make their meager living in, in and along the great rivers of the West…unlike a lot of similar collections, the quality of writing is consistently solid and highly readable.
