Patterson's adventures are as swift and unpredictable as the river he canoes.


'Through the journals, Patterson comes across less as a dominant hero of the wilderness and more as an inexperienced adventurer who, addressing the entries to his mother, marvels at the sight of moose calves and the northern lights even while he struggles to fend off mosquitoes and portage a canoe. In Davis' words, the journals anticipate 'the values of today's ecotourists who seek recreation and communion, rather than conquest, when they travel the Nahanni'.'
