`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).
