Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 096729830X, Paperback)

Kipawa River Chronicles is a narrative of outdoor adventure as experienced by Scott Sorensen and his family who have lived in a cabin at the mouth of the Kipawa River since 1975. Scott published the book in May of 1999 when the Kipawa River was targeted for diversion by the most powerful hydro-electric company in North America. His story captures the unique heritage of one of Canada's most magnificent waterways and the struggle to preserve it for future generations. The account includes Sorensen's role in the search and rescue of the 18 survivors of the St. John's disaster, which stands as the most deadly canoeing accident in the history of the eastern Canadian provinces. Scott chronicles the lives and events of former residents of the Kipawa River including homesteaders, fur traders, loggers, millionaires, movie stars, and the five feature films which were produced at the lodge in the 1920's. The book has captivated readers and outdoor enthusiasts throughout North America. Anyone who enjoys fishing, hunting, rock climbing, skin diving, kayaking, canoeing or tales of wilderness adventure, will find this book both compelling and informative.
