Paddle to the Amazon
The Ultimate 12,000-mile Canoe AdventureBook - 1989
Throughout their journey, nature and man provided an endless mosaic of sights and terrifying dangers. They encountered piranhas, wild pigs, and hungry alligators; they were arrested, taken for spies, and set upon by pirates; and they lived through violent hurricanes, food poisoning, and near-starvation. But the greatest test was the love and conflict between father and son as they struggled to complete their odyssey together. This is a voyage that they -- and the reader -- will never forget.

January 27: Caicara, Orinoco River, Venezuela
"We had a magical experience as we left camp this morning. Several big toninas [fresh water dolphin] were swimming along in front of us, half watching us as we stroked. Every so often, one of them would break away from the rest and power towards us, jumping into the air a few feet from the canoe and doing a complete somersault, sending a high spray of water over us. A second or so later, a delicate rainbow would appear out of the spray and hang for several seconds before disappearing" (248).
