Canoe on the Nahanni free pdf Travel/ Special Interest/ Adventure - Canoeing the South Nahanni... The setting is the legendary South Nahanni River in Canada's Northwest Territories - as remote and wild a river as any man could hope for. The Nahanni flows through a land of unsurpassed beauty and legend - harrowing legend. To access it, you must travel due North across the North American continent until the road is no more, then jump a bush plane for a flight across the infamous Mackenzie Mountains, deep into the wild, to the headwaters of the Nahanni. Once in, there is but one way out - down 300 miles of rampaging river, across mighty Virginia Falls, through Deadmens Valley, then a succession of three formidable, bottomless canyons, filled wall to wall with treacherous rapids - enough whitewater and danger to satisfy even the most beastly of men. On that river, in the summer of "'74" - a man, a boy and an open 16 foot, wood and canvass canoe with 250 miles of bad water between them and homeward bound. Fate would not be kind and near the end of the journey they would find themselves hopelessly trapped in the Lower Canyon without gear or canoe. Only the most unlikely of events could save them - but could they survive long enough for it to happen?
