"both beautifully written, a crisp, ice-cold immersion in the glory of the wilderness"

The River is both beautifully written, a crisp, ice-cold immersion in the glory of the wilderness, and unbearably tense, as peril moves in on Heller’s gratifyingly competent explorers, whose deep friendship is tenderly evoked.
