Beschreibung

Before the novel and the film "Deliverance appeared in the early 1970s, any outsiders one met along the Chattooga River were likely serious canoeists or anglers. In later years, untold numbers and kinds of people have felt the draw of the river's torrents that pour down the Appalachians along the Georgia-South Carolina border. Because of "Deliverance the Chattooga looms enigmatically in our shared imagination, as iconic as Twain's Mississippi--or maybe Conrad's Congo. This is John Lane's search for the real Chattooga--for the truths that reside somewhere in the river's rapids, along its shores, or in its travelers' hearts. Lane balances the dark, indifferent mythical river of "Deliverance against the Chattooga known to locals and the outdoors enthusiasts who first mastered its treacherous vortices and hydraulics. Starting at its headwaters, Lane leads us down the river and through its complex history to its current status as a National Wild and Scenic River. Along the way he stops for talks with conservation activists, seventh-generation residents, locals who played parts in the movie, day visitors, and others. Lane weaves into each encounter an abundance of details drawn from his perceptive readings and viewings of "Deliverance and his wide-ranging knowledge of the Chattooga watershed. At the end of his run, Lane leaves us still fully possessed by the Chattooga's mystery, yet better informed about its place in his world and ours.

Pressestimmen

"John Lane has brought us a haunting review, thirty years later, of how Deliverance, the book and film, have affected the river corridor, its surroundings, the people who live near its banks, and those who come to ride its keen white edges." - Richard Bangs, author of The Lost River and co-founder of Mountain Travel Sobek; "Bring together a genuinely exciting subject - the reality and the myths of the Chattooga River - and a gifted and knowledgeable writer at the peak of his powers, one who knows that subject by heart and bone, and you have the recipe for a book you will want to read (more than once) with pleasure and admiration." - George P. Garrett, author of Going to See the Elephant"
