About this title

Synopsis:

Running from a flood of trouble... Zack Pruitt is a river guide long on skill but short on nerve: he dropped out of college, quit his job, and abandoned his girlfriend and young son when things got tough. Back in the Sierra Nevada, Zack signs on for a high-water river trip with three other guides and eleven clients. As the flotilla careens toward Gallows--a brutal rapid that's always terrorized him--events spin out of control. A near-fatal accident coupled with a rush of snowmelt leave the guides and clients fighting for survival, and Zack discovers that for once running is not an option.

Review:

"River guide Zack Pruitt and his clients get more excitement than they bargained for in this gripping account of three days on the water battling nature, each other, and their own demons ... Flooding Granite offers nail-chomping suspense on every page." 
---Robin Stratton, Boston Literary Magazine

"An intelligent action tale that grabs you by the collar and doesn't let go ... More than a man-battles-nature story, Flooding Granite is layered with a human element that will have you rooting for Zack and caring for him despite, and maybe because of, his flaws."  
---Wayne Scheer, Author of Revealing Moments

"This novel has an earthy and contemporary writing style that reminds me of writers like Norman Maclean and Jim Harrison ... Cross that style with the adventure and suspense of a film The River Wild and you have Tom Mahony's novel Flooding Granite in your hands."
---Lavinia Ludlow, Small Press Reviews

"You can tell Mahony has spent some time behind the oars. His descriptions of everything from rapids and river running to the hassles of dealing with clients are spot-on. It makes you wish you were on the river with him."
---Eugene Buchanan, Paddling Life Magazine

"Honorable Mention: 2011 Best Book of the Year"
---Guide to Outdoor Literature
