Joe Kane, an award-winning journalist based in Olympia, was a member of the expedition that made the first complete navigation of the Amazon River. Join him to hear and see a first-hand account of the only expedition ever to travel the entire 4,200-mile Amazon River. The adventure began 18,000 feet high in the Peruvian Andes and finished in the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Brazil. Kanes book about that adventure, “Running the Amazon,” was a national bestseller and is now in print in fifteen languages. In 2001 the National Geographic Society named it one of the “One Hundred Best Adventure Books Ever Written,” and in 2003 Outside Magazine chose it as one of the “Twenty-Five Best Adventure Books of the Past 100 Years.”
