It's because of this man I treasure the Brazos River today. Read the book, canoe a portion of his journey, and it will inspire you. But how he lived his life, that's a true inspiration. May God Bless you...

When I first arrived in Texas to teach at St. Edward's University, I was assigned an interdisciplinary course entitled "Environmental Literature." I knew I would cover Thoreau, Muir and other authors well-known to me. Someone suggested adding "Goodbye to a River" by John Graves. In many ways, this simple, clear narrative of a canoe trip down the Brazos River became the centerpiece of the course and the touchstone to my own explorations into what focused observation can teach and inspire. I return to the book often and wonder at how relevant it still is. I continue to paddle in my blue canoe with my mutt on the rivers of Texas.
Thanks, John.
