Kein Fluss bedeutet dem Südafrikaner Fisher mehr. In ihm fließt seine Vergangenheit. Diese Stromschnellen haben ihn gelehrt, die Unwegsamkeiten des Lebens zu überwinden. THE ULTIMATE RIDE ist eine Reise voll epischer Schönheit, Selbstfindung und lebensbedrohlicher Abenteuer. Fisher beweist, dass er nicht nur einer der besten und ambitioniertesten Athleten der Welt ist, er ist auch einer der verrücktesten. ´Es ist eine andere Art von Kajakfilm, in dem sich die Charaktere im Verlauf des Filmes entwickeln und in dem man sieht, wie sie die physischen und psychischen Herausforderungen unseres Lebens überwinden´, sagt Fisher.
Adventure sports changed his life. The Race to the Midnight Sun nearly ended it.Upside Down in the Yukon River is an inspiring, true story full of dreams, fear, doubts, success, failure, and hope, in which an ordinary guy from Iowa takes on an extraordinary challenge that quickly turns into a fight for his own life against Mother Nature herself. Steve Cannon´s honest and humble storytelling throughout this engaging adventure challenges each one of us to live every precious moment empty of regret and reminds us all that our only real failures are those steps never taken in pursuit of our own dreams. 1.

Upside Down in the Yukon River:Adventure, Survival, and the World´s Longest Kayak Race Expand Your Possible. 1. Auflage Steve Cannon
Tim Bowden loves traveling with his wife Ros, their four-wheel drive and camping trailer, and setting up camp under bush skies. In Down Under in the Top End, he combines all three to take us on one of the world´s greatest road trips, from Australia´s east coast to the Top End and into the heart of the outback. Told with wry humor, an infectious enthusiasm for history, and a nose for finding great stories, Tim lays bare the hardships of bush life and celebrates the joys and freedoms of being on the road. He takes us to a pub with no beer at Gregory Downs, has us paddling a kayak between the red granite cliffs of Lawn Hill Gorge, teases us with the pleasures of being an overnight guest in Darwin´s Government House, and leaves us wondering what a statuesque and topless German tourist was doing striding down the Stuart Highway. Along the way, he introduces us to characters only the outback could throw up, fellow travelers, and extraordinary tales of exploration and unexpected immigration. With Tim Bowden as your guide, Down Under in the Top End will have you packing your bags, putting your belongings into storage, and taking to the road. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tim Bowden.
