Voyage of a Summer Sun

Canoeing the Columbia River

Oregon State University Press
Based on Cody’s 82-day solo canoe trip down the Columbia River, from its source in the Canadian Rockies to its mouth at the Pacific Ocean, Voyage of a Summer Sun “gives a sparking account of his adventure, interweaving historical detail and natural history with childhood memories of the river” (Publishers Weekly). It won the Oregon Book Award and the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Award, and was selected by the Oregon State Library for its “150 Books for the Oregon Sesquicentennial” program.

Robin Cody is the author of Ricochet River and Another Way the River Has. He lives in Portland.
