Tired of an unfulfilling life in Kansas City, Patrick Dobson left his job and set off on foot across the Great Plains to Helena, Montana, where he bought a canoe and set off on an adventure to reset the trajectory of his life. In "Canoeing the Great Plains: A Missouri River Summer," he recounts how he, as a novice canoeist, faced the Missouri River at peak flood stage and how the river and the people he met gave him a new lease on life. He is now a celebrated travel writer, historian and ironworker. Copies of his book will be available for purchase and signing.
