The Best Women's Travel Writing 2011:
True Stories from Around the World

The Labyrinth

Heartbreak and Class V whitewater converge on Costa Rica's Naranjo River.

"My favorite story set in Costa Rica is written by Bridget Crocker who demonstrates courage and paddling expertise on a maiden voyage down a mean river. She begins this journey in emotional crisis, but remembers that she is strong, self-reliant, capable and fully engaged in life when it comes time to turn on survival skills."
--Linda Ballou, Amazon review

--Susan Frith, Pennsylvania Gazette
