Sick Heart River has more twists and turns in the plot than some sci-fi I've read. I hope that you enjoy this book as much as I did. The way of ending the book is also VERY original. Other than this book's slow start up, I enjoyed every page. There is some peril and adventure interwoven but the main theme is Edward Leithen's future. In one of his other Sir Edward books, two of the stories are about men facing death but they are just that, short stories. Buchan handles the ups and downs that Sir Edward goes through with simplicity.

Sick Heart River turns the adventure yarn into a spiritual quest with an authority that few have ever rivalled. Evening Standard Sick Heart River is both John Buchan's most powerful novel and his last, completed just days before his death. It was published posthumously in 1941. Buchan's rich descriptions of the rugged Canadian Northwest Territories are influenced by his real-life voyage down the Mackenzie River in 1937. At that time, Buchan was Governor-General of Canada.
The narrator, Sir Edward Leithen, features prominently in several other John Buchan novels, including The Power-House, The Dancing Floor, John Macnab, and Sick Heart River. They inform three Scottish estates that they will poach from each two stags and a salmon in a given time. They sign collectively as 'John McNab' and await the responses. This novel is a light interlude within the "Leithen Stories" series - an evocative look at the hunting, shooting and fishing lifestyle in Highland Scotland.
