THE RIVER READER, 10th Edition (formerly THE RIVERSIDE READER) is a collection of expository essays arranged by rhetorical modes: narration and description, process analysis, comparison and contrast, division and classification, definition, cause and effect, and persuasion and argument. A final thematic unit illustrates all of these modes. The readings represent diverse voices and views from some of the most respected professional essayists working in the English language, along with short stories and student examples. Essays in this edition serve as structural models for students to emulate in their writing and as sources of content for classroom discussion and paper topics. Headnotes and post-reading material analyze each reading in context, helping students better understand the craft of writing and apply what they learn to their own work.

"This is a very solid reader as it has been around a long time and Trimmer and Hairston are professional teachers and writers. They obviously have kept living contact with the classroom as the book has both very update selections and incredible electronic online support and writing complements. Of all the readers out there, this is one of the best."
"A nice collection of interesting and diverse short stories that has themes that all of my students can relate."
"[THE RIVER READER] offers a wide breadth of materials in a convenient package that is small enough to carry around."
