Published by iUniverseBooks
If you’ve never camped on a sandbar in the Congo or met rebels in the mountains of Mexico...attended a wedding in Thailand or Christmas dinner in Bangladesh—hop on board. Here’s your chance to explore the rivers and forests of the world, meet some unforgettable people, and share their adventures.

A good story will take you to places you’ve never been and teach you things you didn’t know—especially when you put yourself in the hands of a master storyteller like Ben Mathes.

As an explorer and world health advocate, Dr. Ben Mathes has traveled the world since 1978; gotten himself into and out of predicaments, been surprised, excited, frightened, and most of all, enriched by the lessons he’s learned along the way.

He founded ROW (Rivers of the World), an international exploration and development agency that uses rivers to reach people in remote places, discover their needs, and help them solve their problems. You can learn more about ROW and its projects to fight malnutrition, river blindness and malaria at www.row.org.
