The brief brilliant whitewater career of Buzz Holmstrom. In November of 1937, Buzz Holmstrom, an unkown service station attendant from the tiny logging town of Coquille, Oregon, made headlines across the country. Alone, in a boat he designed and built himself, he navigated over a thousand miles of the rapid-strewn Green and Colorado Rivers. Now, fifty years later, three boatmen have brought to light a story about rivers and wooden boats, about heroes, humility, unbearable beauty, solitude, and death. Holmstrom’s is the tale of a man’s lone struggle in a difficult and changing world. 288 pages, written by Vince Welch, Cort Conley and Brad Dimock.
