About the Book

Praise for Rafting the Rolling Thunder: “Fasten your ‘raft-belts’ folks! You’re in for the white water rafting ride of your life. Wooldridge keeps readers on the edge of their seats on a wild excursion through the Grand Canyon. Along the way, he offers you an ‘outlaw’ run by intrepid legend “Highwater Harry”, a man who makes a bet with the devil and nearly loses his life. The raft bucks beneath you as Harry crashes through Class V rapids. And the Grand Canyon Dish Fairies, well, they take you on separate rides of laughter and miles of smiles! Enjoy this untamed excursion on a river through time.” -Jason Rogers “John Wesley Powell, Henry David Thoreau, Edward Abbey and John Muir make their presence known in this wild ride down the Colorado River. You may call it “Wilderness Wisdom” that rushes along with you through 1.7 billion years of creative process along the Colorado River. It’s fun, wild and so much more! I found myself laughing at the “Dish Fairies” as they grumbled through their daily chores. For pure fun and spiritual musings, this book carried me into uncommon adventure. Enthralling!” -Robert Johnson “After reading this adventure, I am going to find a rafting company and book a ride down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. I must find out for myself if some of the sights Wooldridge describes actually exist! Explorer’s Monument, Vasey’s Paradise, amphitheaters that can hold 20,000 people, exotic waterfalls and shimmering pools—really? I’m ready!” -Mary Lynn “Wooldridge made me feel like I sat beside him as he rafted through throbbing white water rapids. I climbed up treacherous ledges with him. Those morning sunrises and captivating sunsets lifted my spirit. Quite a read and spiritual, to boot! Fun, frolic and funny!” -Kathy Tainter
