Originally called Outdoor Adventures, Bob Volpert founded Kern River Outfitters and has been commercially running rivers since the ’70s. Published in 2012, Halfway to Halfway is a collection of stories compiled by him and a fellow outfitter, Dick Linford.

“The 31 exciting, bizarre, tragic and weird river tales in this collection are told by a happy, healthy and often hungover guides and outfitters who make their meager living in and along the great rivers of the West. Unlike a lot of similar collections, the quality of writing is consistently solid and highly readable.”
