Filled with history, white-knuckle drama, and mutiny in one of the world's most storied-and remote-locations, Hell or High Water is the riveting story of this adventure.
Hell or High Water book. As a river-running challenge, the remote Tsangpo is relentlessly unforgiving, more difficult than any stretch of river ever attempted.
Peter Heller, himself an accomplished kayaker, was along for the ride. In this beautifully written and exciting tale, he takes us into the water and down the cataclysmic vertical drops, painting a portrait of a grand adventure in a place that time never touched.
Hell or High Water may be the most engaging non-fiction book that I've ever read. For a NON white water person the book describes the adrenaline addiction, self challenges, skills necessary to tackle the Tsangpo River, probably the most dangerous and inaccesible river in the world. It describes the physical challenges, political and cultural differences of sherpas and carriers. It describes the kyakers intrusion into sacred territory and the needless aggression of China over Tibet's indigenous people. Insight into high-achievers, and an unseen part of the world.
