Book Review: Ka-Ka-Ska-Ska by Jim Lewis
So back in December Noelle and I had gone to a special event: Christmas in a Logging Camp at the Minnesota Forest History Center in Grand Rapids. We really enjoyed the event and had fun seeing what life was like in an early 1900s logging camp around the holidays. While we were there we met a guy who had a little table set up with copies of the book he had written about his kayak trip down the entire length of the Mississippi River from Itasca State Park to the Gulf of Mexico. The guy's name was Jim Lewis, and being a lover of adventure stories I figured I would give the book a read.
Purchasing the book turned out to be a good investment. Not only was the book an excellent adventure read, it was also quite humorous. Mr Lewis has a great sense of humor and is a surprisingly good writer to boot. In short, if you're looking for a funny read about the adventure of a lifetime pick up Ka-Ka-Ska-Ska, you won't regret it. And if you want to know about the weird title, you're going to have to read the book.
