Summary
The journey begins at the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, then wanders into the beautiful little rivers of Minnesota, Wisconsin, provincial parks of Canada, the Louisiana bayou, and the arid West. Part travelogue, part natural and cultural history, Portage is the memoir of one family's thirty-five year venture into the watery expanse of the world. Along the way they run rapids when it would have been wiser to portage, take portages and learn truths about aging, avoid partages and ponder risk-taking. Through it all, exploring the river means encountering life: good decision, missed chances, risks, surprises, and the inevitable changes that occur as a family canoes through time and learns what it means to be human in this natural world
