Here is a brief description of the book:
When I take the eyes of the dead, they cannot find their way to Ponemah, the Land of the Spirits, on their own. Instead they wander blindly, crashing about the forest.
It falls to Pauguck to lead them out.
When a person dies, an ancient spirit takes his soul to the next life. He is Pauguck, the Retriever of Souls—and he has always argued with Raven, a mischievous spirit who blinds the spirits of the dead, leaving Pauguck alone to guide them to the Land of the Spirits. But today, the stakes of their argument are even higher.
Two men are on a river trip—and one of them wants to die. Pauguck does not believe the men on the river will need his services, but Raven is determined to do everything to end their lives. So it’s up to the river guide to save himself and his suicidal passenger from fire, wild animals, and the single-minded Raven.
Filled with ancient spirits and deadly secrets, this chilling wilderness tale is sure to keep your heart racing, for no-one is safe from the terror of the river.
