Summary

Summary

New York Times bestseller

One of the Modern Library's 100 Best English-Language Novels of the Twentieth Century

A 2012 Audie Award Finalist for Best Narration

Winner of an AudioFile Earphones Award

The smash-hit best seller that inspired the acclaimed 1972 film starring Jon Voight, Burt Reynolds, Ned Beatty, and Ronny Cox is now available in unabridged audio for the very first time.

The setting is the Georgia wilderness, where the state's 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.

This classic tale is vividly read by movie and TV star and Audie Award-winning narrator Will Patton.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Available for the first time in audio format…Will Patton’s narration is nothing short of haunting. His Southern tone steadily declines from that of a man pondering all that is possible in the world to that of a shattered soul. Dickey’s intensity is present from the very first sentence…[and] listeners are inclined to step into the canoe alongside the adventurers and float gently toward damnation. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Wholly absorbing [and] dramatic.” Harper’s Magazine
“A novel that will curl your toes…Dickey’s canoe rides to the limits of dramatic tension.” New York Times Book Review
