When one reads Ruthless River: Love and Survival by Raft on the Amazon’s Relentless Madre de Dios by Holly Fitzgerald you will be reading a harrowing saga of a raft trip down the dangerous deadly animal and fish infested river. The author and her husband on a honeymoon trip backpacking around the world were stranded in the Peruvian jungle after their plane crashed. On advice of the locals they were advised to take a raft down the river as transportation out would be months away.
The selection will be discussed at Fairhaven’s Millicent Library, 45 Center Street on Thurs., 1/16, 10 a.m., in the library’s meeting room accessible through the Walnut Street entrance
The discussion is free and open to the public. The book is available at the library or visit www.millicentlibrary.org. Call Norma Markey at 508-993-3745.
