"A wonderful book—fresh and intelligent. Broyles's eye for Vietnam, then and now, is unerring."
"[A] superbly written, often moving story of Broyles' journey back to the killing ground in Vietnam where he once served as a Marine lieutenant. A cool, clear meditation that stings the heart."
"A first-rate piece of work, infused with an ideal American common decency and common sense."
"Exceptional and memorable."
Poetic, hilarious, and heartbreaking, Sounds of the River is a gloriously written coming-of-age saga that chronicles a remarkable journey -- a travelogue of the heart.
