In Up the Creek, some of the most experienced canoeists in North America confess their mistakes in true tales of hypothermia, near-drowning, close encounters with rapids, and more.

  • Fifty stories grouped by theme – Live and Learn; Random Acts of Nature; The Choices People Make; and others
  • Introductory chapter outlines principles of canoeing safety and judgment
  • Closing chapter reinforces the lessons of each story
