About the book, Rivermen of the Cumberland:
In need of adventure, and inspired by the explorations of Lewis and Clark, Chris Bennett made a plan to take his small fishing boat on an historic 460-mile journey down the Cumberland River. The trip would begin in Creelsboro, Kentucky, just a few miles below Wolf Creek Dam, and take him through Nashville, Tennessee, and on past the Land Between the Lakes to the Ohio River.

Says Chris,
"I wanted to seek out new life, and new civilizations; I wanted to boldly go where no electrician, or used guitar salesman, had gone before"
In June of 2007, he recruited Neal "Action" Jackson, of Jamestown, Kentucky, and loaded up his trusty Bass Tracker to set out on the adventure of a lifetime.

Part travelogue, part rural history, part high-seas adventure, Rivermen of the Cumberland is funny, inspiring, and insightful.
