TitleColumbia Unveiled : being the story of a trip, alone, in a rowboat from the source to the mouth of the Columbia River, together with a full description of the country traversed, and the rapids battled, by an old voyager and whitewater man
Description446 p. At the age of 68 M. J. Lorraine explored the Columbia River from its source to its mouth alone in a rowboat.

The book describes his preparations for the journey and experiences along the way as well as the country through which he travelled, and is illustrated with a number of black-and-white photographs he took en route.
