"Hyde vividly portrays both the wonders and horrors of white-water rafting."

—Diane White, The Boston Globe

"Hyde is well qualified to guide her readers through this... journey... Her prose is vigorous and natural, her perception subtle, her voice and those o f her characters all-American."

—Liesl Schillinger, The New York Times Book Review

"Engaging... Hyde has a keen eye for social dynamics, but she’s just as good at keeping the adrenaline pumping... She expertly evokes the thrill and terror of rapid-running... A bracing ride."
