Sick Heart River Summary

Sick Heart River by John Buchan

`I have made my peace with the North, faced up to it, defied it, and so won its blessing.' Given a year to live, lawyer and MP Sir Edward Leithern fears he will die unfulfilled and disillusioned. He resolves to devote his last energies to finding and restoring to health a young Canadian banker, Galliard, whose own personal crisis has led him to seek solace in the search for the distant River of the Sick Heart in remotest north-west Canada. Enduring a severe Arctic winter, Leithen finds Galliard and feels his own health returning. The North has healed both men, but only one will return to civilization. Sick Heart River (1941) was John Buchan's last novel, published after his death while in his final year of office as Governor-General of Canada, and many consider it his finest. This edition is helpfully annotated and has a substantial introduction which considers the novel's vital place in British and Canadian literature of the mid century. This book is intended for general readers; students of the adventure novel, colonial literature (Canada).
