Three eighteen year olds just graduated from high-school...sitting in front of their campfire on the Klamath River in Northern California discussing what would be the trip of a lifetime. After many hours of debate, they came to agreement: explore the unknown reaches of the headwaters of the Amazon and then traverse the river to its mouth on the Atlantic Ocean. -- Huck Finning the Amazon by Arthur Post is their extraordinarily epic story: beyond any doubt, the greatest adventure achievement of the twentieth century. -- The author, Art Post having found additional photos, maps, and stories from his original notes rewrote part of the First Edition of Huck Finning the Amazon to include this material which lay hidden in boxes and erased from his memory until rediscovered 70 years after their disappearance. The result is Huck Finning the Amazon Expanded Edition."-from the forward.
