Natalie Warren | Nonfiction, 2021
A fascinating book to enjoy while on my very first overnight rafting trip! While experiencing four nights and five days on the San Juan River in Southern Utah, it was remarkable to read this true story of two women, Natalie and Ann, who make the 2000-mile journey from Minneapolis to the Hudson Bay in a Kevlar canoe. Their story is surprisingly interesting ... I was not certain that paddling for three months would encompass enough drama, but between weather, the people they met, snakes, hunger, what they learn about the land, their near disasters, the challenges to their relationship as best friends, and acquiring a canoe dog, Hudson Bay Bound kept my interest throughout. It is not the best writing I have ever read, so likely will work best for those of you, like me, who have a penchant for true nature adventure stories.
