Richochet River is set in a fictional Oregon town in the late 1960s. This completely revised edition is a coming-of-age story about teenagers preparing to break out of their small-town lives: Wade, the local sports hero; Jesse, his friend - the Indian kid and mythical athlete who applies his own rules to sports and life; and Lorna, Wade's sweetheart, who knows there's no hope in Calamus for a bright, independent girl. The river rushes past the town, linking the three friends with their pasts, their plans, and the world beyond.

"We want you to do it again." These words, spoken to Brian Robeson, will change his life. Two years earlier, Brian was stranded alone in the wilderness for 54 days with nothing but a small hatchet. Yet he survived. Now the government wants him to go back into the wilderness so that astronauts and the military can learn the survival techniques that kept Brian alive. Soon the project backfires, though, leaving Brian with a wounded partner and a long river to navigate. His only hope is to build a raft and try to transport the injured man a hundred miles downstream to a trading post--if the map he has is accurate.
