I've enjoyed other Peter Heller novels and The River can be added to that list. It makes you think about how perception can be affected under the threat of wildfire, starvation, then possibly a killer. How far will you you go to act on your suspicions and the possibility you might be wrong? Doing the right thing can have terrible consequences. Beautiful descriptions of nature will take you along for the ride with Jack and Wynn.
Note: I listened to the audiobook for this one.
