Reviews

Both beautifully written, a crisp, ice-cold immersion in the glory of the wilderness, and unbearably tense. - ObserverUtter joy... A suspenseful tale told with glorious drama and lyrical flair... The River is a fiction addition to the New Landscape writing of Robert Macfarlane and Rebecca Solnit, prose so vivid and engaging that a city-dwelling reviewer can feel the clammy cold of a fog over a river or the heat of subterranean tree roots burning underfoot in the aftermath of a fire. - Denise Mina, New York TimesWhere Heller really scores is the extraordinarily high quality of his writing about the natural world, which is lyrical and action-packed by turns. - Guardian
