In River of Fire, Wilson captures the power, humour, adventure and intrigue.... the very essence of adventure on a northern river. Now, more than ever, society needs to re-awaken to the life-changing and profound experience that is time and travel in the natural and still wild world. In a manner of storytelling worthy of Aldo Leopold and John Muir, Hap Wilson’s River of Fire will indeed light your soul on fire and into a yearning for still possible wilderness adventure.
