"After the death of his son, a father
takes the river voyage he has always dreamed of.
Starting out from his family ranch on the headwaters in
the Sandhills of Nebraska, his inner voyage takes him to
new acceptance of the son he never said goodbye to in
life, while he faces the solitude and challenges of the
river itself. The land plays as large a part of the
story as do the people on the river. Lowen Clausen has
written an exquisitely heartbreaking novel, with a soul
as big as the eponymous river."
