Let Them Paddle: Coming of Age on the Water by Alan S. Kesselheim is an astonishing account of parents who nurture their three children in the wilds of river canoeing, celebrating each child in his/her passage to adulthood on their own birth river. This book is stunning and heartfelt. I could not put it down.
