Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When I was young, I lived beside a wild river. The river was always going somewhere, and I never tired of watching it. My mother told me the river began in the mountains to the north and ended in the ocean to the west. But this I had never seen.<P>Rivers, oceans, and clouds will never seem quite the same again after "Go Home, River." In this turn-of-the-century story, a young Eskimo boy follows his family into the mountains to the river's beginning, sails down the gathering river to its end, and marvels as the river takes itself apart in its delta.

Synopsis:

An inspiring, enlightening, powerful book! Winner 1995 Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association Award, 1995 RMBPA Design Award

About the Author

Fobes work has appeared in many magazines.
Tom Jay was born in Manhattan, Kansas in 1943. His father's military and corporate careers necessitated frequent transfers; Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, Utah, Idaho, Nevada and California. After dropping out of college in the mid sixties he wandered the world for a couple of years; stowing away on a cruise ship to Europe; working in an Icelandic cement factory and on a Danish farm. Upon his return he discovered his life's calling as a bronze caster- sculptor. He came to Washington State to finish his education and graduated from Seattle University with a BA and an MFA from the University of Washington. He moved to Chimacum in 1969 and built and operated Riverdog Fine Arts Foundry until 1995. For the last 25 years he has worked with his wife Sara Mall Johani and co-operated with other volunteers to engage the community imagination in place-based culture through art, festivals and educational adventures.
Bradford Matsen is the author of Descent: The Heroic Discovery of the Abyss as well as many other books abou the sea and its inhabitants. He was a creative producer for the television series The Shape of Life, and his articles have appeared in Mother Jones, Audubon, and Nature, among other publications. He divides his time between Seattle and New York City.

John Chatterton and Richie Kohler contributed to the research of Titanic's Last Secrets, as they did for Robert Kurson's Shadow Divers, the 2005 Book Sense Nonfiction Book of the Year.
