In the 1950s a series of dams was to be built on the Brazos River in north-central Texas that would change the river and those who lived beside it forever. This book is Graves's account of his last canoe voyage on the river he had known as a youth. Henry Strozier's dry, definitive tones cause no misgivings as to historical or even geological veracity. This journey along the condemned river in chilly November is both a poignant farewell and an anecdotal history lesson of Indian massacres and headstrong drunks and fish that got away. As a monologue of thoughts and impressions, this book is lucky to have such a sympathetic reader, who makes the listener pleased to simply go with the flow.
