“Trails of Wrathful Waters” by David Curran

now available in the online journal AppalachiaBare


This is a delightful chapter from the author’s book Hiking for Fun and Pain.  Leaving his comfort zone of sylvan serenity, Dave agrees to join his fearless brother-in-law in white-water rafting on the Ocoee River, followed by calmly rowing down the Missouri, then hopping in a funyak to take on the turbulent Nolichucky River.  The result is a tale of high adventure laced with humor.
