Overview

" . . . a spirited journey story I found as irresistible as the powerful river that carries us through the beautiful and treacherous northern landscape. "– Jack Hodgins author of, The Master of Happy Endings, Broken Ground, A Passion For Narrative.

After surviving a health crisis, Jay heads to the remote and challenging Dease River in Northwestern BC for a two week canoe and fishing journey, but is unprepared for the mysterious stranger who becomes his passenger. A lean and intense tale that takes the reader to haunting depths. A seminal and brilliant addition to a neglected genre, the novella.

Reviews

"Packing quiet wisdom and a poet's eye, Grayling takes us on a spellbinding journey through a grim and gorgeous north country. Haunting, surprising, and unforgettable. " —Bill Gaston, author of The World, Sointula and Juliet Was A Surprise

"Rarely have I read such a sensual engagement between words and landscape. Grayling is a work of profound Canadiana —as fast and rough and bright and bracing as the Dease River itself. " —Annabel Lyon, author of The Sweet Girl
