Whitewater Rafting on West Virginia's New and Gauley Rivers

Come on In, the Water's Weird

Sports

by Jay Young

eBook

0 of 1 copy available

A certain mixture of whimsy and derring-do is required to shove off down (or up) the New or Gauley River with scant protection aside from a helmet, life vest and one's compatriots. It's a choice that could be so easily avoided, but that wouldn't make sense to the proud and colorful characters who have long been shooting these rapids, some of the most popular and treacherous in the country. Here, Jay Young, a rafting guide turned writer, leads readers through the local lore and history of the rivers, where—much to the delight of those brave enough to face these rapids—the ordinary almost never occurs.
