After solo trips on American and English waterways, recounted in One Inch above the Water (2008) and Discovering England (2012), Payne shares four more harrowing and humorous adventures in Worlds to Discover:• Facing angry bulls and breached dams on the Connecticut River-• Navigating alligator-infested swamps on the Chattahoochee River-• Outguessing rapids and quicksand on Chiles Bío Bío River-• Dodging towboats and exploding fish on the Ohio River.Through thick and thin, Payne stumbles onto a new theory: If you want to learn from your mistakes, he says, you need lots of them.Retired professor and long-time kayaker, Jim Payne has written dozens of accounts of solo kayak trips in the U.S. and abroad. With fierce determination to face his fears, and the willingness to laugh - and learn - from his mistakes, Payne shares surprising discoveries, astute observations, survival instincts, and countless social encounters that highlight the regions he visits and human nature overall. Calling himself a social kayaker, Payne combines his tales of nautical mayhem with unusual encounters of people and places on land.
