    In this powerful, passionate chronicle, Noah Adams, the beloved host of NPR's All Things Considered, takes us on a river journey through the heart of Appalachia - a journey shared by pioneers and preachers, white-water daredevils, bluegrass musicians, and an unforgettable cast of vivid historical characters.

    Overall

    As a general read I would give this a very low score (1 star), if I were moving to the area or planning to canoe the New River or bike around the area I would give the book a much higher score (3/4 stars). There is no real story here and the history of the area and the people are only lightly touched on, if at all. I was left wanting much more. However; trails, river sections, stores and such are covered well along with a good description of the area and would certainly be of value to anyone planning a trip there.
