Portland native Amos Burg was the first person to navigate the Snake and Columbia rivers by canoe. In 1938, he was the first to run the Colorado River in a rubber raft, and is the only known person to have navigated all major Western rivers from source to mouth. Vince Welch’s newest biography, The Last Voyageur: Amos Burg and the Rivers of the West, explores the life of the badass boatman.
