This is Don's third book of adventure tales. But unlike his first two books, The Idling Bulldozer and The Seventy-Thousand Dollar Outhouse, which focused exclusively on kayaking, the tales in this volume go beyond kayaking to include adventures on the land and in the air, finally ending with a tragic story that gives the book its name. Through these stories, the author has shown that adventures are not vacations, that sometimes things can and do go wrong, and that they may even end in tragedy. This is a powerful and immersive collection of stories which take the reader on a journey through the excitement and tragedies of new adventures.…mehr

Autorenporträt
Donald D. Yackel has spent 30 years paddling on extended wilderness trips, most of it in his 17-foot kayak. He has paddled well over 4,000 miles and has spent the equivalent of a year or more sleeping in small tents in all kinds of settings. The adventures in his third book differ from the first two (The Idling BulldozerandOther Paddling Adventures and The Seventy Thousand Outhouse). The stories in this book detail hiking and flying adventures, as well as paddling trips. And while they continue to chronicle positive adventures, for the first time, they tell about some that were not so good and one that ended tragically. Combining a life-long interest in writing with his natural ability as a storyteller, Don can take the reader to places they may never see or experience. He hopes you will enjoy these stories and find meaning in them.
