The River was calling him...Growing up in rural Kansas, Gabriel Clarke was mysteriously drawn to The River, a ribbon off rothy white water carving its way through steep canyons high in the Colorado Rockies. From deep within, Gabriel's passion for The River was undeniable. The fast waters beckoned him to experience freedom and adventure-and leave his past behind.
But something was holding him back.
As Gabriel came of age in Kansas, chains of fear and resentment imprisoned him, keeping him from discovering all the treasures of The River-its powerful rapids, relentless gradients, and boulder-strewn sections of majestic splendor. He couldn't let go of the horrible event he witnessed on The River when he was four years old-something no child should ever see.
In this compelling story, Gabriel learns that letting go of the past means giving himself totally to The River-heart, soul, and mind.
