Abstract:

""Living on the Kipawa River is pretty quaint and simple, isn't it?" "That's right, Ma'am, quaint and simple is good enough for us." Scott Sorensen knew that arguing with her would be useless; for it is only to those who can see a little farther, climb a little higher, and dive a little deeper that the answer is not so simple -- only the question is quaint. Perhaps if she had paddled a canoe with the wild, red-haired Whistler of the North, or kayaked the rapids with Don Quixote de la Kipawa, or come face to face with the thirteen lifeless boys adrift in the currents of Lake Temiskaming, she might never have put her question to words. The remote and rugged shores of the Kipawa River have been home to the Sorensens for 25 years. Their lives and those of numerous others are intertwined with the flow of this world-class whitewater river. But the Kipawa River is at risk. The most powerful hydro-electric company in North America has proposed to reduce this historic waterway to a trickle of water in a rocky ditch. This book captures the unique heritage of the Kipawa River, and the struggle to preserve it for future generations."--Www.chapters.indigo.ca.

"Kipawa River Chronicles is a narrative of outdoor adventure as experienced by Scott Sorensen and his family who have lived in a cabin at the mouth of the Kipawa River since 1975. Scott published the book in May of 1999 when the Kipawa River was targeted for diversion by the most powerful hydro-electric company in North America. His story captures the unique heritage of one of Canada's most magnificent waterways and the struggle to preserve it for future generations. The account includes Sorensen's role in the search and rescue of the 18 survivors of the St. John's disaster, which stands as the most deadly canoeing accident in the history of the eastern Canadian provinces. Scott chronicles the lives and events of former residents of the Kipawa River including homesteaders, fur traders, loggers, millionaires, movie stars, and the five feature films which were produced at the lodge in the 1920's. The book has captivated readers and outdoor enthusiasts throughout North America. Anyone who enjoys fishing, hunting, rock climbing, skin diving, kayaking, canoeing or tales of wilderness adventure, will find this book both compelling and informative."--Amazon.ca Feb.2013.
