From Wyoming to Mexico, an 1,800-mile adventure of a lifetime.
Marriage itself is a journey, but this couple also embarked on a 1,800-mile adventure from the headwaters of the Colorado River—its tributary, the Green River in Wyoming—to its terminus in Mexico's Sea of Cortez.
Author Susan Kees and her husband Bill made the trip after thirty years of marriage, as they were becoming grandparents. They traveled in a raft, a motorless watercraft with custom rigging and two sets of oars so that they could row in tandem.
Tandem Rowing is not just a travelogue but a reflection on life, aging, and relationships, and an intimate portrait of a river that pulses through the landscape like the heartbeat of the earth.
