Great Books Set on River Journeys
a book list by Peter, the avid reader who runs Flashlight Worthy
In looking through my shelves I realized I've read a good number of novels and memoirs that unfold along a river journey.
In thinking about it, rivers are an obvious setting for a good story. Both start out simply, grow as they follow a winding, circuitous path that frequently obscures what comes next... and end up at an inevitable destination.
If I ever write a novel, rest assured a river will figure in prominently.
