Adam Verner narrates in a plainspoken way that allows this mysterious and mesmerizing audiobook to wash over the listener. He choses a deliberate pace and storyteller's style that suits this tale of water wanderlust. This is the biography of Dick Conant, a giant of a man who paddled an overloaded red plastic canoe down the Mississippi, the Hudson, and the Yellowstone Rivers--alone. Author McGrath met the loquacious Conant accidentally, was moved by his larger-than-life story, and wrote about him. In 2014, he was contacted by North Carolina authorities who discovered McGrath's card among Conant's belongings after his canoe was found overturned and abandoned in North Carolina's Great Dismal Swamp area. Fine travel writing and mystery make a riveting listen. A.D.M. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2022]
