Praise

“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
