Reviews

"You're hooked, you feel every cut, grope up every cliff, swallow water with every spill of the canoe, sweat with every draw of the bowstring. Wholly absorbing [and] dramatic."--Harper's Magazine

"Once read, never forgotten."--Newport News Daily Press

"How a man acts when shot by an arrow, what it feels like to scale a cliff or to capsize, the ironic psychology of fear: these things are conveyed with remarkable descriptive writing."--The New Republic

"Freshly and intensely alive . . . with questions that haunt modern urban man."--Southern Review

"A fine and honest book that hits the reader's mind with the sting of a baseball just caught in the hand."--The Nation

"[James Dickey's] language has descriptive power not often matched in contemporary American writing."--Time

"A harrowing trip few readers will forget."--Asheville Citizen-Times "A novel that will curl your toes . . . Dickey's canoe rides to the limits of dramatic tension."--New York Times Book Review "A brilliant and breathtaking adventure."--The New Yorker "A tour de force."--New Republic
