Cape Fear River Watch Book Club will meet Saturday, Aug. 25th, at 10:30am.


The Cape Fear River Watch Book Club has no cost to join and meetings are held monthly every 4th Saturday.

The book for August is Courting the Diamond Sow: A Whitewater Expedition on Tibet’s Forbidden River by Wickliffe W. Walker.

About the book: Firsthand accounts and journal entries offer a dramatic chronicle of a four-man kayaking expedition that tried to become the first to navigate a remote stretch of the Tsangpo River in Tibet, a quest that ended in tragedy when one of the men, kayak racer Doug Gordon, was killed in the attempt.
