Wind River - Tom Morrisey

Wind River
Tom Morrisey


You Can't Outrun the Sins of Your Past
Desperate to forget what happened to him in Iraq, Tyler Perkins flees to the emptiness of Wyoming. He's here to escape and also to fulfill a long-ago promise by accompanying his 86-year-old friend Soren Andeman on a fly-fishing trip--once more for old time's sake. But their trek to an idyllic trout lake soon becomes something more deeply harrowing--a journey that uncovers long-held lies, deadly crimes, and the buried secrets of the past. Ty barely has time to contemplate the question of what constitutes justice when nature unleashes her own revenge. Trapped in a race back to safety, he must face his own guilt-ridden past or risk being consumed.

Powerfully imagined by the acclaimed author of In High Places, Wind River is an engaging wilderness adventure that explores the power of confession, the beauty of forgiveness, and the freedom of truth unveiled.

I have to confess that I wasn't too crazy about this book. If I were an avid outdoors-person or really enjoyed fshing, I probably would have enjoyed it more. But I'm an avid indoors-person, and once, long long ago, I had a bad fishing experience and haven't gone against since... It was a decent book, but it didn't really grab me.

All right April, I'm dying here: what was the bad fishing experience?

BTW, I imagine Norman Maclean wouldn't fare too well with you either, so I'm not offended. I admire you for reading this even though you don't care for the major activity in the book. That's dedication!
