From the jacket- "It was with a new form of boat propulsion, designed in New Zealand, that a party of Americans and New Zealanders proposed to challenge the authority of the river. After a down-stream run to lay in caches of fuel they would turn about and run the rapids 'against the grain.' Impossible said the experts."
