This book follows the flow of time and the river as it unwinds in a small town in Pennsylvania along the banks of the Susquehanna. The narrator experiences those quiet moments of joy when ducks come from the sky to skim the water's edge or in the height of a Nor'easter as he walks through the forest filling with snow, but also the sadness of a neighbor's dying or love breaking apart. The river flows, always bending and changing, like the love found in finding a mate with whom to run under flying snow geese or pile wood together. Yet, the postmodern world seems lost without a past. A bout with colon cancer brings a renewed sense of the preciousness of each day and how the culture is wrong in its headlong race towards the future. The book ends with moments that resonate with the past in a state of continual discovery.
