Summary, etc.:
This is a quiet, poignant, and beautifully written account of Franklin Burroughs's six-day canoe voyage down the Waccamaw River from its source in North Carolina through his ancestral homeland and birthplace, Horry County. In this distinctive and rapidly disintegrating backwater, Burroughs reflects on life on and off the river, on topography that had been destiny, destiny that echoes in the speech, memories, and circumstances of the people he encounters on the trip. -- book jacket [2]
