Description
“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 The setting is the Georgia wilderness, where the states most remote white-water river awaits. In the thundering froth of that river, in its echoing stone canyons, four men on a canoe trip discover a freedom and exhilaration beyond compare. And then, in a moment of horror, the adventure turns into a struggle for survival as one man becomes a human hunter who is offered his own harrowing deliverance.Praise for Deliverance“Once read, never forgotten.”—Newport News Daily Press“A tour de force . . . 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
