Synopsis:
Not in recent memory has there been such a unique and vibrant fictional character--a character who could make us laugh so easily, feel so deeply, who speaks with such starling truth about the way we live, as Gus Orviston--the irreverent young flyfisherman in THE RIVER WAY.Leaving behind a madcap, fishing-obessed family, Gus embarks on an extraordinary voyage of self-discovery along his beloved Oregon rivers. What he unexpectedly finds is man's wanton destruction of nature and burning desire to commit himself to its preservation.Here then is the funny, sensitive, very special story of one man's search: for meaning, for love and for a sane way to live...a tale that gives a contemporary voice to the concerns and hopes of all living things on this beautiful, watery planet Earth.

Review:
"Irreverent, offbeat, and thoroughly likable."

Los Angeles Times

Review:
"Entertaining... humorous... well worth reading. The range and vivid depiction of characters mark Duncan as a major new novelist."

Chicago Tribune
