Amazon Extreme: Three Men, a Raft, and the World’s Most Dangerous River (with Colin Angus)

Stoddart (Canada) 2001, Doubleday (Canada), Broadway Books (USA) 2002

In Amazon Extreme Mulgrew materializes Colin Angus’ memories into a you-are-there account of his expedition’s terrors and triumphs. In spite of Shining Path gunmen, mosquito-laden drinking water, and, of course, the terrifying rapids themselves, his crew also found a reverence for the equally compelling beauty that makes this region so renowned. Graceful dolphins, lush forests, and the intriguing people who live along the river complete the backdrop as Angus’s five-month excursion unfolds. Culminating in an astonishing victory that garnered major media coverage, this is the story of three guys who truly went off the deep end, and one who came back to write a riveting recollection of it.
