I’ve never been rafting or kayaking, although even before reading The Middle Fork – A Political Novel, I have been interested in doing so. Now, I’m even more interested. Rick Glaze has crafted a brilliant story out of his love of white water and politics.
As a group of kayakers head down the Salmon River in Idaho, they experience nature and several heated debates. Mr. Glaze does a phenomenal job of creating a compelling story that brings to light the many sides of politics and the raw power of nature. After a heavy rain, the Salmon River becomes a dangerous and unpredictable journey for our characters and only by working together can they come through it.
I was personally thrilled by the images that Mr. Glaze shows the reader while travelling down the river and I was equally excited to read a book that shows ever side of the political highway… and what’s wrong with each side. In addition, he does so in a way that is bright and informed.
The Middle Fork was a great and fast read. It was a story that had a little bit of everything and although it sounds cliché, it was a great ride!
