Sick Heart River has more twists and turns in the plot than some sci-fi I've read. There is some peril and adventure interwoven but the main theme is Edward Leithen's future

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.

Sublimated story of Sir Edward being told that he has a year to live.
Buchan never gets morbid in his analysis of facing death.It was his last book and the introduction talks about the author himself being an invalid.
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. There is soul-searching but all of it ends in his acknowledging his need and ultimate trust in God.

The story is captivating, good description of a man's soul searching, and being in peace with God and nature.

I recently read this book for a report in my English class. I usually never read anything outside of Sci-fi, fantasy, or well known classics. Although the first 30 or so pages I had trouble staying awake, it changed quickly into a book I couldn't put down. There are some great characters in this book, and Buchan leaves the reader (listener) on your toes a lot. This book had a great deal of philosophy in it, and though it took me some time to appreciate it, eventually I found that this book has a very deep meaning to it. Sick Heart River may only be available in tape-form now, but it is the same story that I read. 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. Kudos to Buchan, a wonderful written book!
