Undiscovered White Waters of the Bashkaus River

Ken Casey with Project RAFT meets the USSR! 

Prior to the Perestroika and the Glasnost movement, Project RAFT (Russians and Americans For Teamwork) and Ken Casey embark on an adventure to the USSR, on then the unknown Class 5 rapids on the Bashkaus River in Siberia. 

For the first time Americans and Russians work together to try to tame the powerful waters of the Bashkaus River in this incredibly difficult historic event.

Will Ken, members of RAFT and the Russians make it out in one piece?
